GRAND LODGE OPENED 

Grand Lodge was opened in Ample Form and 
the Acting Grand Chaplain invoked the blessing 
of the Great Architect upon its deliberations. 

Permission was given to Master Masons to 
occupy seats in the balcony. 

ADDRESS OF WELCOME 

R.W. Bro. C. S. Hamilton, Chairman of the 
Toronto Past Masters' Association, introduced 
W. Bro. Wm. J. Stewart, Mayor of the City, 
who addressed the Grand Master as follows: 

Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Most Wor- 
shipful Sirs, Right Worshipful Sirs, Worshipful 
Sirs and Brethren all: 

To you, Most Worshipful Sir, and through you 
to the members of the Craft, I extend not only the 
official thanks of a grateful municipality, but also 
my own as a Mason, for accepting the invitation to 
Grand Lodge to meet in the Capital City of the 
Province in Centennial Year. 

May I extend to you and my fellow members 
my most sincere appreciation for membership in the 
Craft. As a Past Master of Ulster Lodge, I have 
many times heard distinguished brethren sing 
"The Ulsterman from Home." I have heard it 
and enjoyed the singing of the song and the senti- 
ments expressed, but I am in the very unique 
position of being an Ulsterman and not away from 
home, as I enjoy the honor in Centennial Year of 
being Mayor of the City of my birth. To the 
upbuilding of this great City, I not only appreciate 
the contribution made by the men of Ulster, 
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada and 
other parts of the Empire, but with them I also 
appreciate the fact that I was born within the 
Empire. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 7 

To Ulster Lodge, their Past Masters, Officers 
and Members, I am forever grateful, as I am to my 
Mother Lodge, Stevenson, for membership in the 
Craft. I regard membership not only a high 
privilege and a great honor, but I also regard it as 
a very solemn obligation taken upon the volume of 
the Sacred Law which creates increased individual 
responsibility, loyalty to the Crown, support for 
British institutions and obligation to my fellow 
men and to all humanity. 

Membership in the Craft to me means an 
earnest and sincere endeavor and desire to live up 
to the highest ideals of good citizenship as exem- 
plified by the Masons who have gone on before 
and by those in positions of responsibility in the 
Craft who so eminently hold up the noble tradi- 
tions which have been committed to their trust and 
keeping. 

Most Worshipful Sir, it is indeed a. great 
privilege to be associated with men of Masonic 
ideals and from time to time be permitted to meet 
under the impressive and uplifting environment of 
the Craft in session. Membership in this historic 
and noble fraternity is fondly cherished. Ours is a 
great fraternity in which men holding positions in 
the State from the highest in rank to the humble 
meet upon the basis of equality; where rank or 
fortune creates no preferment and obtains no favor; 
where men meet to promote brotherly love, relief 
and the welfare of humanity; to perpetuate and 
extol, live up to and spread the characteristic and 
symbolic teaching of Masonry — "Truth". 

In our Country we have those about us who, 
by teaching and agitation, would wreck the pro- 
ducts of strong arms and stout hearts that have 
taken centuries to create. It is of universal value 
that we have Masons about us whose teachings are 
to "Build"; to build the temple of man's own 
soul; who have for their plans and specifications 
the writings in the volume of the Sacred Law direct 
from the Great Architect of the Universe. 



8 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Persons in positions of responsibility believe in 
the simple philosophy of live, that whatever is 
sown eventually must be reaped. With those about 
us sowing the mustard seed of communism, it is 
reassuring to know that we have the Craft sowing 
the "seed of grain" of good citizenship. Masonry 
is something to be lived up to and not a cloak nor 
certificate, nor a license for preference. 

Your leadership, Most Worshipful Sir, and 
your inspirational addresses have not only secured 
the co-operation and confidence of the members of 
the Craft, but have rightly commanded the respect 
and admiration of the communities throughout the 
Province. You have preserved, strengthened and, 
by the power of example, further developed the 
ties of brotherly love. 

The progress made by our City in the past 
century, time will not permit me to review. I ask 
you, Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, what kind 
of a City would we have had, had it not been for 
the religious leadership, churches, fraternal pat- 
riotic, loyal and character-building institutions? 1 To 
the Craft, the City of Toronto is forever indebted 
for the upbuilding of the world's greatest asset — 
our human resources. 

Upon the foundation so well and truly laid by 
our forebears the Masonic structure, raised by those 
who have preceded us throughout the ages, carries 
well. Building of the superstructure, under your 
direction as leader of the Craft, guided by the 
Great Architect of the Universe, is the work before 
us in this — Toronto's Centennial Year. In years 
that are to come, the rising and future generations 
will truthfully say of you, "he builded better than 
he knew." 

To you, Most Worshipful Sir, and to every 
member of the Craft, I extend in the name of the 
City of Toronto a very hearty welcome, and wish 
to tell you, and through you to inform the mem- 
bers, that the Capital City of Ontario cherishes 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 9 

not only respect and admiration, but goodwill and 
sincere appreciation for the Craft. 

May I assure visitors from other parts of the 
Province and from other Jurisdictions, there is no 
industrial or imaginary wall of selfishness and self- 
interest about the City of Toronto. We are in- 
terested in the progress of all municipalities, our 
Province, and the Dominion of Canada within the 
British Empire. However, there is a human wall 
of which we are justly proud which has been 
erected by Masons. They have builded an organ- 
ization for the welfare of humanity, for the support 
of law, peace, order and for good government. 
Long may the Craft continue to grow and prosper 
in building for the welfare of humanity and future 
generations, founded as it is upon that to which 
Queen Victoria attributed the success of the British 
Empire — the Open Bible. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, Toronto is 
honored by your presence. The freedom of the 
City is yours. 

Signed and sealed on behalf of the Corporation 
of the City of Toronto this eighteenth dav of 
July, A.D., 1934. 

W. J. STEWART, Mayor. 

J. W. SOMERS, City Clerk. 

GEORGE WILSON, City Treas. 
and Keeper of Civic Seal. 

REPLY OF THE GRAND MASTER 

May it please Your Worship: 

To the great city of Toronto and to yourself 
in your dual capacity of chief magistrate of the 
city and a Past Master of the Craft, I extend 
heartfelt thanks for the warmth of the welcome 
which you have accorded us. I realize full well 
that the pleasant, the cordial and the eloquent 
address to which we have just listened is no idle 



10 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

gesture on your part and that it does in truth 
reflect the sentiments of both of yourself and of the 
capital city of our Province, towards our fraternity. 
For this and for the personal references which you 
were kind enough to include in your address I de- 
sire to thank you. And may I state with all 
sincerity that the graciously happy sentiments you 
have voiced on behalf of the city are reciprocated 
by this Grand Lodge. We appreciate your hos- 
pitality. We are glad to be with you and we wish 
you in this your centennial year, man}* happy 
returns of the day and all good things for the 
future. 

It is perhaps just as well that on this present 
occasion the reply to your address of welcome 
should be in the hands of one who is not nor ever 
has been a citizen of Toronto, for it means that 
whatever I may say is free from the suspicion of 
being biased by local or civic pride. I trust 
therefore that you will convey to the good citizens 
of Toronto the felicitations of the Grand Lodge of 
Canada in the Province of Ontario and the assur- 
ance that the citizens of Ontario look with affec- 
tionate pride upon Toronto not only as their 
Capital City, but also as their governmental, 
judicial, ecclesiastical, educational, cultural and 
business centre. We do congratulate you upon 
your growth and industry. We regard ourselves, if 
not as actual citizens of Toronto, yet as honorary 
members of your corporation and as such stand side 
by side with you in the fervent hope that still 
larger and better things lie ahead of Toronto in 
the future. 

Will you then accept once more our apprecia- 
tion and our thanks and good wishes.

ADDRESS OF WELCOME 

The Masters of all the lodges in the City of 
Toronto were introduced and presented the fol- 
lowing address : 

Most Worshipful Brother Frank A. Copus, Grand 
Master of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M., 
of Canada in Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Grand Master: 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1934 41 

To express our veneration lor the head of the 
Craft in this Grand Jurisdiction, to tender to him 
our respect as a man and as Grand Master, to tell 
him of our affection and admiration, is the purpose 
of this address which we, the Worshipful Masters of 
the seventy-eight lodges in the City of Toronto, 
present to you, Most Worshipful Brother Copus, 
on behalf of the officers and members of our Lodges. 



Need we say that we welcome you to the City 
of Toronto, that we consider it a privilege and an 
honour that Grand Lodge should decide to hold this 
Annual Communication in our City 5 Toronto has 
now completed its first century of growth and 
development. When the City was twenty-one 
years old, the Grand Lodge of Canada was founded. 
Both are institutions of mature age in years; but in 
optimism, in ideals, in the desire for high endeavour 
both are still in the full bloom of youthful buoy- 
ancy. Both, like Janus,, look back to a past of 
which they are proud and look forward to a future 
full of hope and promise. 



In the City of Toronto, Masonry and Masons 
are held in high esteem. Masons are good citizens 
and are labouring diligently for the welfare of our 
Dominion, our Province, our City and our Craft. 
Your own representatives, the four District Deputy 
Grand Masters, have reported to you that your 
brethren of this City are looking towards the rising 
sun, are zealous in their devotion to Masonry, and 
are striving towards that goal of absolute truth 
which is the objective of every conscientious Mason. 

Yet we are humble ; for we realize that we have 
done some things that we ought not to have done 
and that we have left undone many things that we 
ought to have done. But we have tried to emulate 
you and to take our Masonry seriously as you do. 
In your addresses to us, when you have visited 
our Lodges, you have demonstrated that you have 
high ideals for Masonry, that you are enthusiastic 



42 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

for its future. We are trying to assimilate those 
ideals and to emulate that enthusiasm. 



Dear to the heart of our Grand Master are 
Masonic Benevolence, and Masonic Education. 
In the practice of the former and the promotion of 
the latter we have faithfully endeavoured to com- 
ply with your wishes. Though we have not at- 
tained, nor can every attain in these respects to 
that state of perfection towards which we strive 
and have striven, we venture to hope that our 
efforts in these directions may have merited your 
approval. 



Of our loyalty to our Grand Master and our 
Grand Lodge there can be, we trust, no question. 
Fully do we realize that our inspiration comes down 
to us from the rulers of the Craft. In obedience 
and in service to Grand Lodge and to our Grand 
Master we hope to demonstrate that we are true 
Masons. 



All of this, Most Worshipful Sir, the brethren 
whom we represent wish us to say, as we welcome 
you on this memorable occasion. We are yours 
and you are ours. May the Great Architect of 
the Universe grant you an abundant measure of 
health and strength for the duties of the coming 
year and may you, by His good grace, long be 
spared to go in and out among us, to guide us 
with your kindly counsel and to cheer us by your 
gracious companionship. 



We subscribe ourselves your loving and 
obedient brethren: 



Here follow the signatures of all 
the ruling masters of the seventy 

eight lodges in the City of

REPLY OF GRAND MASTER 

The Grand Master in reply to the Address 
spoke thus: 

W. Bro. dimming, Right Worshipful Sirs and my 
brethren the Ruling Masters of the Toronto 
Lodges: 

One would be much less than human to re- 
main unmoved after listening to the more than 
kind terms in which you have phrased your wel- 
come to your Grand Master and to the Grand 
Lodge. Indeed I feel that in your reference to the 
present head of the Craft you have been truly 
Masonic, for to his failings you have been more 
than a little blind while your affection has led you 
to gild and magnify his virtues and the value of the 
contribution he has been able to make during the 
year that is now closing. In so doing, in thus 
allowing your heart to rule you rather than your 
head, you are in line with the generous reception 
which has been tendered your Grand Master 
throughout the length and breadth of this juris- 
diction. For I can assure you that, if I were asked 
to express in one sentence my impressions of the 
past year, that sentence would concern itself 
exclusively with the wonderful, the heartwarming 
and the truly notable evidences of affectionate 
regard that are showered upon the brother who is 
fortunate enough to be the chief head and ruler 
of the Craft. And as I have had occasion to do 
many times during this past year in the quiet 
precincts of your own temples, so here once more 
and in the presence of the whole of Grand Lodge, 
I wish to thank you and the Masons of Toronto 
from the bottom of my heart for all that you have 
done and are doing to render more pleasant and 
more happy the lot of your Grand Master. 

May I add a word or two further in addressing 
you particularly as the representatives of the nearly 
fourscore lodges that meet in the City of Toronto 3 
I think I may say that I am intimately acquainted 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

with the condition of Masonry in the capital city 
of the Province and I desire to congratulate you, 
Right Worshipful Sirs, who have been my repre- 
sentatives here during the past year, and you, my 
brethren, who are the ruling masters, upon the fact 
that Freemasonry is as it is in Toronto — a benefit 
to the community, an uplifting influence in the 
body politic, a rallying point for good, a training 
ground for citizenship. Grand Lodge appreciates 
the record of the Toronto Lodges in this respect 
and is grateful to you who as leaders in the Craft 
have served so well. 

From the days when, before the opening of the 
last century, the banner of Freemasonry was first 
unfolded here, from that distant date until the 
present Freemasonry has had a large place in the 
history of this community and we are confident 
that in the days that are to come it will enjoy an 
ever widening sphere of useful service and of in- 
spiration to men of goodwill. 

I would like also to add that we feel ourselves 
particularly indebted to you in that the lodges of 
the City of Toronto are our official hosts on this 
occasion. There is a tremendous amount of work 
involved in taking care of a gathering such as the 
Annual Communication of our Grand Lodge, and 
you were fortunate in that you were able to call 
to your assistance a committee consisting of many 
enthusiastic and experienced Masons, leaders of the 
Craft here in Toronto, who were able and willing 
to devote unselfishly of their time and efforts to the 
perfecting of the local arrangements for this gather- 
ing. The altogether efficient arrangements that 
were made for the reception of the Board of Gen- 
eral Purposes and the happy handling of the larger 
task, the care of Grand Lodge, is an evidence that 
this committee has discharged its duties in the most 
efficient manner and we are most grateful to them 
for having so largely added to our comfort and 
well being. 

We thank you most sincerely for your affec- 
tionate greeting and we trust that the future 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 



will be filled with nothing but good things for you 
and yours. 



PRESENTATION TO GRAND MASTER 

W. Bro. Cumming then presented to the 
Grand Master a beautiful silver humidor, suitably 
engraved, as a mark of love and appreciation from 
the Toronto lodges. This gift the Grand Master 
accepted in a few gracious words. 



RULES OF ORDER 

The Rules of Order were read by the Grand 
Secretary. 

ORDER OF BUSINESS 

On motion of the Deputy Grand Master and 
the Grand Secretary it was resolved: That the 
Order of Business might be changed at the dis- 
cretion of the Grand Master. 



MINUTES 

The Grand Secretary began to read the min- 
utes of the Proceedings at the last Annual Meeting, 
when it was moved by M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel, 
seconded by M.W. Bro. W. H. Wardrope, and 
resolved: That inasmuch as the Minutes of the 
last Annual Communication, held in St. Catharines 
have been printed and distributed to all Con- 
stituent lodges, the same be now taken as read and 
confirmed. 



GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

M.W. Bro. Frank A. Copus, Grand Master, 
then read the Annual Address: 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

My Dear Brethren: — 

I welcome you most cordially to this the 79th Com- 
munication of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province 
of Ontario. We are meeting in the capital city of our 
Province at a time of especial interest and importance 
in its history, for this year marks the One Hundredth 
Anniversary of its corporate existence. The celebration 
of this happy birthday occasion has been in progress 
since March 6th last, and at this comparatively late date 
it is surely almost superfluous for me to state that it has 
been watched with sympathetic interest by all citizens of 
Ontario. To the great City of Toronto this Grand 
Lodge extends its hearty and sincere birthday greetings. 

The story of the birth of organized Masonry in this 
city is not too well authenticated. It would appear that 
as early as 1792 on the arrival of the first Lieutenant- 
Governor of Upper Canada, Bro. Lieut. -General John 
Graves Simcoe, there were already one or more lodges 
here. Indeed it was in that same year that M.W. Bro. 
Wm. Jarvis received his warrant from the "Antient" 
Grand Lodge of England as Provincial Grand Master of 
Upper Canada and at least one Toronto lodge is given in 
the list of lodges placed under his care. The "Modern" 
Grand Lodge was also not without representation in the 
growing frontier town. These early lodges certainly 
functioned for some time, nor does history tell us much as 
to their ultimate disappearance, for a veil covers the 
record of what became of these first Masonic bodies in 
the little town of York. 

But some twelve years before the event which this 
city is now celebrating we approach the period of docu- 
mented local Masonic history, when there was instituted 
St. Andrew's Lodge, now No. 16, the oldest Toronto 
lodge on the Register of Grand Lodge. As years are 
counted here in Canada it is a long time since that 
day when the altar fires of the Craft first were lighted in 
what is now Toronto — but during the years that have 
intervened that sacred flame has burned ever bright and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 47 

clear, and in the interval the backwoods settlement has 
become an Empire metropolis. 

Who can estimate the contribution that Freemasonry 
has made to the welfare and the progress of this place? 
Thousands upon thousands of her best citizens, leaders 
in all walks of life, have been glad and proud to feel that 
in the pursuance of their Masonic activities they were in 
no small measure helping in the upbuilding of the City of 
Toronto. To-day nearly four score of the lodges that 
are on the register of Grand Lodge have their homes 
within this city and about one-quarter of the members of 
this Grand Lodge are resident within her borders. I 
repeat that these Toronto brethren, happy as citizens 
of no mean city, are joined by all Masons throughout the 
Province in assuring the City of Toronto of our pride in 
her historic past, our congratulations on her splendid 
present and our best wishes for her yet more glorious 
future. 

The year that has passed since last we met has not 
been without its encouraging features, for while we have 
perforce been much engrossed in the problems arising 
from the world-wide economic distress, we have also, we 
hope and believe, seen the first signs of a return to more 
normal conditions. Faint as these portents may be, 
they are none the less definite. The dawn of better 
times from a business standpoint is hesitatingly aglimmer 
in the eastern sky. Let us hope that by this time next 
year when we are celebrating our eightieth birthday, we 
shall be rejoicing in the morning rays of the sunshine of 
business recovery. 

No student of human affairs — and Freemasons 
should be pre-eminently of that ilk — can look back over 
the past few years without recognizing that they have 
been of outstanding interest and of serious import. We 
are glad to believe that these years have held encourage- 
ment for those of us who still own an abiding faith in the 
inherent good common sense of the average man; but 
it were idle to deny that they have also brought cause 
for alarm, the most disturbing feature in hitherto happy 
Canada being the planting in the body politic of the 
cancer of class hatred. 



-IS GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

It is but natural that during times of widespread 
distress there should develop an unrest among those who 
feel themselves to be the innocent and helpless victims 
of the social machine. And the history of all human 
progress shows that a constructive, an ennobling and a 
justifiable discontent has been the motive power for 
almost all movements for the amelioration of mankind. 
For this entirely praiseworthy discontent, for this 
longing for a day of better things and of more fair social 
conditions all good Masons should and do cherish both 
sympathy and encouragement. 

But unfortunately the past few years have witnessed 
an insidious attempt to capitalize on this unrest, deliber- 
ately plotted by elements in the community whose 
evident goal was trouble for its own sake, the stirring 
up of hatred between man and man — in short revolution, 
not evolution. For those who have been in a position to 
observe what went on at the focal points of disturbance, 
the conviction cannot be escaped that so far as some of 
the leaders are concerned they are in all too many cases 
interested not so much in bettering conditions or remedy- 
ing injustices as they are zealous in keeping the witches' 
caldron of trouble ever simmering on the fires of a false 
class consciousness. 

I think it is not unfair to state that the efforts of these 
disturbers and their propaganda have been given a 
prominence in the public press much greater than their 
importance merits, and that the consequence has been 
altogether unfortunate for the public weal. I believe it 
is time that tribute should be paid to the sane, the con- 
scientious, the well balanced and the helpful efforts of the 
larger portion of the daily press of this Province. Their 
contribution during these trying years has been of in- 
estimable value and merits the appreciation of all good 
citizens. But I am equally certain that the actions of 
some of our newspapers in headlining every trouble- 
maker with every detail of sensational appeal deserve 
nothing but the condemnation of all who are sincerely 
interested in the righting of conditions that admittedly 
need attention. Glaring head-lines that place the worst 
possible construction on the event described, reading 
matter that deliberately distorts the motives and the 
actions of public men who, at the cost of much effort and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 49 

self-sacrifice, are sincerely endeavoring to serve the 
people, the constant voluminous quotations of the unim- 
portant opinions of agitators who otherwise would be 
known only in their own unimportant circles — those 
surelv are in themselves an evidence of a misconception 
as to the proper functions of the public press at a time of 
national crisis. 

It was Dr. Johnson who observed that "patriotism 
is the last refuge of a scoundrel," by which he meant not 
so much to pillory the virtue of patriotism as to point 
out how inevitably the generally accepted truisms of life 
are seized upon by self interest for its own purposes. 
And so it might perhaps be well for us to go a little 
warily in bowing the knee without careful examination 
to some of the well worn phrases that are heard so often 
in these days — 

"Freedom of speech" — yes, by all means, but not 
without accountability — for Freemasons well know that 
there is no true liberty without the supremacy of the law. 

"Vox populi, vox Dei," — the voice of the people is 
the voice of God. Is it truly the voice of God or merely, 
as Dean Inge says, the voice of the odd man at the 
polling booth 5 And it has been well pointed out that 
popular clamor would have shut out the steam engine, 
the power loom, the threshing machine and the spinning 
jenny, while it was the voice of the people that on many 
another occasion hurried Freedom's martyrs to the 
scaffold or the stake. 

"The liberty of the press" — again yes, by all means. 
But surely this does not mean irresponsible license to 
become the vehicle whereby every noisy agitator en- 
larges his constituency by the thousands; or license to 
violate every reticence that decency enjoins in the face of 
domestic and purely private trouble; and, least of all, 
license to use for unworthy ends a power that in its 
influence on public opinion is exceeded by no other single 
agency in our modern life. 

How fatally easy it is to be hypnotized by shibboleths ! 
How more than foolish to tolerate conditions that are 
sacrosanct only because frequently entrenched behind 
glib truisms that too often take the place of intelligent 
thought! Have we outgrown some of these brittle 



.50 GRAND LODGE OF CAXADA AXXUAL COMMUNICATION 

maxims Are they now but faded mile-posts that mark 
not the way of the future but the path by which men 
have attained to a larger liberty, a newer and perhaps 
more true concept of human relationships Who shall 
say? Certain it is, however, that the last word has not 
been spoken, nor have men yet attained perfection in the 
art of living together 



My brethren, I realize that it is not necessary for me 
to ask the Masonic fraternity to extend sympathy and 
assistance to those thousands who through the neces- 
sities of the times require our help — such sympathy and 
assistance has been and will be extended as need arises, 
full measure, pressed down and running over. But I do 
plead with the members of this fraternity in their 
capacity as citizens — and Masonry should above all else 
be a training ground for citizenship — I do plead for more 
kindly consideration for those who are charged with the 
management of public affairs, whether federal, provincial 
or municipal. Our public men of all shades of political 
opinion are carrying crushing loads. Almost without 
exception they are endeavoring to deal fairly with all and 
to assist the ship of state to ride out the storm in safety. 
Is it too much to ask that these men should be credited 
with at least an average amount of honesty and of a 
desire to do right Shall factious criticism be replaced 
by a. reasonable display of constructive co-operation ? 



I am aware that there are those among our numbers 
who look back with longing to the so-called "good old 
davs", and others who profess to believe that the world 
is getting worse, that our social system is a failure, that 
religion is an opiate and that the cure for present ills 
lies in the complete overthrowal of what most of us have 
been taught to regard as the average decencies and 
restraints of life. My brethren, these are essentially 
hopeless doctrines. They are the counsels of despair — 
and they are absolutely false. Mankind has not come 
to the end of its resources and the great body of citizens 
are justified in continuing to cherish the belief that the 
world is getting better and that humanity despite all its 
short comings, its failures and its setbacks is moving 
towards a better day. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 51 

And more than that — and this needs most em- 
phatically to be said — the average Canadian does not 
believe in nor practise the red law of the jungle. He is 
not ever and always ahunt for plunder at the expense of 
the less fortunate classes in the community. He has not 
his foot on the neck of the deserving poor. On the 
contrary he is a reasonable and a fair minded individual, 
with a warm heart, a ready hand and an open purse for 
public and private distress and with an eager desire that 
unfair and unequal conditions shall be remedied. To 
believe the contrary is to be blind alike to the history of 
our race and to the essential aspirations of mankind. 

Of the truth of this more cheerful theory of life 
Masons should be convinced above all other men. And 
in the propagation of that doctrine Freemasonry can 
to-day find its outstanding mission, for of this I am quite 
sure — that it is within the power of the Craft to make a 
great contribution to the public weal, in that we can 
offer a steadying, a sobering and a common sense 
element in the community that is desperately needed. 
We can offer a body of opinion that cannot be stampeded 
either to the right of dictatorship and the smothering of 
the free institutions of the land, or to the left of Com- 
munism and a wild-eyed so-called democracy that would 
upset all that humanity has evolved as presenting the 
best way in which men may live happily together and 
face eternity unafraid. We can offer a saving modicum, 
a leaven of public opinion that if it is true to the training 
it receives in our lodges will examine all these questions 
that so trouble the world with minds broad-based upon 
the only successful theory of life that has emerged from 
the long travail of humanity — that God is good, that 
genuine happiness for mankind comes from obedience 
to His precepts and dependence on His love and that in 
all our relations with our fellow-men we are to regard 
them as truly our brethren. 

Surely therefore it is a great task to which Free- 
masonry is called in a world so noisy with the clamors of 
the pullers-down and of the wreckers. Indeed it is 
more than a task, it is a duty — a high calling to stand 
squarely, firmly and unafraid as Masons and as Builders. 
Shall we not then, here and now, dedicate ourselves anew 
to this vision of what it means to be a Free Mason ? 



52 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

For the Grand Lodge of Canada the year has been 
one of quiet, useful service, with little of major import- 
ance to disturb the even tenor of our way. Our relations 
with all foreign jurisdictions continue peaceful and happv. 
So far as the constituent lodges are concerned, nothing 
could be more admirable than their loyalty to the Grand 
Lodge, a loyalty expressed so often and in so manv 
different ways in all parts of the jurisdiction as to be 
most impressive, particularly when we are aware of the 
fact that many of the lodges have been anxiously strug- 
gling with most unusual financial problems. Fullv 
conscious of the pressing nature of these problems in so 
many cases, your Grand Master wishes to express his 
unbounded admiration for the manner in which the 
lodges are surmounting these unusual difficulties. It has 
been a great testing time and on the whole it has been 
met with the quiet and efficient courage that one would 
expect from a body of men trained above all things to 
bear one another's burdens. I am happy to believe 
that from a financial standpoint the worst is over for our 
•lodges, that conditions may be expected to progressively 
improve and that happier days in this respect lie im- 
mediately ahead. 

In this connection, however, I suggest that Grand 
Lodge should take cognizance of the fact that while the 
period of financial strain for the lodges may soon be 
expected to terminate, it is not yet over and that before 
normalcy returns it may be that certain of the lodges 
may require some temporary measure of easement in so 
far as a portion of their financial burdens are concerned. 
The matter has given your Grand Master long and 
anxious concern and I felt impelled to seek counsel and 
advice thereon from the Grand Treasurer, the Grand 
Secretary and the Supervisor of Benevolence. 

We found it a problem not too easy of solution. On 
the one hand we ought as far as possible to assist the 
lodges to extend consideration to those of our brethren 
who through no fault of their own find it difficult if not 
impossible to pay their lodge dues. On the other hand 
we must be careful to avoid any hasty measure that may 
result in a considerable lessening of the income that 
Grand Lodge derives from the one dollar per member 
paid over by the lodges. In the consideration of this 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 53 

matter it is vital to remember that while our Constitution 
provides that eighty cents out of every dollar thus 
received by Grand Lodge is to be expended for benevolent 
purposes, in actual practice we are handing over to the 
Committee on Benevolence every cent that is so received, 
for the administrative expenses of Grand Lodge are 
borne in their entirety from the income on our General 
Fund. Nor should it be forgotten that our benevolent 
expenditure is at an absolute peak at the present time, 
a condition that is quite understandable in view of the 
general economic situation. 

In the belief that the problem, serious as it is, is 
purely emergent and temporary in its nature and may be 
expected to right itself in due time, I recommend that 
Grand Lodge authorize the appointment of a special 
Tribunal or Commission with power to deal with any 
appeals for assistance and relief that may be made to 
Grand Lodge by constituent lodges. The findings of this 
Commission shall of course be subject to the approval of 
the Grand Master, the Deputy Grand Master and the 
Grand Treasurer and its term of office shall be for one 
year only, my hope being that the necessity for its 
existence will have passed away when Grand Lodge next 
meets in annual communication. 

I received a petition from a number of brethren to 
institute a new lodge at Port Loring, but after consulta- 
tion with the District Deputy Grand Master of the 
Muskoka District and after careful inquiry into all the 
circumstances, I decided that it was not in the interests 
of the Craft to start a new lodge at this time and therefore 
refused consent to issue a dispensation. 

The year has presented many interesting administra- 
tive questions, and I have been called upon for numerous 
rulings. Few of them had to do with fresh problems, 
most of the questions submitted for decision to me being 
concerned with matters that have already been dealt 
with either in the Constitution or the rulings of my 
predecessors. A few of these problems, however, 
should be referred to : — 

For instance, I ruled that it is improper at the annual 
election of the officers of a lodge for a motion to be 



.54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

passed empowering the Master or some other designated 
brother to cast a single ballot for the election of a brother 
to office. I am aware that this procedure has become a 
practice in many lodges and I am fully conscious of all 
that can be said in its favour in so far as the saving of 
time is concerned. But I am satisfied that the procedure 
is inherently objectionable in that it may under certain 
circumstances tend to smother or to prevent the carrying 
into effect of the wishes of a majority of the members. 
The Constitution provides for the election of the prin- 
cipal officers of our lodges by ballot. See Section 147. 
To my mind the words "by written ballots" unquestion- 
ably imply that every member present and eligible to 
vote should mark his ballot himself. Xor, in my 
judgment, was it ever contemplated that a practice 
would arise under which this privilege is to all intents 
nullified by a procedure in which the brethren have to 
use what amounts in essence to an open vote for or 
against some particular nominee. 



One quite representative gathering of past masters 
passed a resolution during the year in which they called 
upon me to deal drastically with the perennial question 
of newspaper publicity for our lodge proceedings. Apart 
altogether from the fact that I am not in a position to 
control such publicity, I do not think it desirable at 
least for the present to issue any mandate on the subject. 
In my opinion there has been a salutary improvement in 
recent years in this matter, due to the intelligent co- 
operation of the editors of our papers plus the inherent 
good sense of the members of the Craft. Perhaps this 
much might well be said for the guidance of our younger 
brethren — that there should certainly be no reference in 
the public press to matters that are of interest only to 
Masons in their capacity as such, and further that, 
while our Masonic titles mean a good deal to the cog- 
noscenti, they are meaningless to the outside world and 
therefore should not be used in reference to Masonic 
events in the newspapers. 



I was asked to approve the use of a new musical 
ritual, to the preparation of which a great deal of atten- 
tion had been devoted bv a talented brother. It might 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 193+ 55 

be well to remind the brethren that the musical ritual at 
present so largely in use has been formally approved by 
Grand Lodge. A Committee on Musical Ritual studied 
the matter in 1916 and the present musical ritual is the 
fruit of their efforts, being adopted by Grand Lodge for 
use in constituent lodges. It would appear, therefore, 
that the use of any other musical ritual is barred except 
by special permission of the Grand Master. Lodges 
would do well to take note of the fact. 

In this connection I suggest that the time has come 
when some measure of control will have to be devised in 
the matter of selections that are sung as solos during 
lodge proceedings. On several occasions it has occurred 
that the wording of some of these solos has been objec- 
tionable in that it offended the religious susceptibilities 
of some of the brethren. I am sure that such was quite 
unintentional on the part of those who were responsible 
for the choice of these musical selections. I would 
suggest that the Worshipful Master should in each case 
examine the wording of the songs proposed to be used 
and, if he is in the least doubt, it might be well to submit 
the matter to the Grand Secretary's office for advice- 
The fact is that we must not lose sight of the principle 
that Grand Lodge definitely controls the ceremonial 
work of the lodges, and it should perhaps be emphasized 
that this control covers any musical numbers that may 
be used while the lodge is in session 



As was the case with all my predecessors, I have been 
repeatedly asked for dispensations to initiate candidates 
who were ineligible in that particular lodge under our 
constitutional provisions in regard to residence The 
excuses — they were seldom reasons — were in most cases 
more ingenious than cogent, and I have consistently 
refused to be moved from the well reasoned attitude of 
former Grand Masters, that only under most exceptional 
circumstances would such dispensations be granted. 
I am confident Grand Lodge agrees with our view of this 
matter, that to loosen in any way our present regulations 
in regard to residence would lead to the utmost confusion 
and endless trouble, and so I appeal to the lodges to 
refrain from subjecting your Grand Master to the pain 
of having to refuse your requests. 



56 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I was asked to approve an amendment to the by-laws 
of a certain lodge, under which the sons of members 
of the lodge would be charged an initiation fee twenty- 
five per cent, lower than the fee charged to ordinary 
applicants. Careful consideration of the matter, fol- 
lowed by consultation with the members of the Com- 
mittee on Constitution and Laws, convinced me that 
this was a case where the interests of the whole fra- 
ternity should overbear the wishes of an individual 
"lodge. In approving or disapproving of a matter of this 
kind, I conceive that the Grand Master should predicate 
his verdict not only on the question of constitutionality, 
but also after careful consideration as to whether the 
proposed by-law will be in the best interests of the Craft 
as a whole. In this particular matter my view is that all 
candidates for Masonry should be treated alike and that 
to do otherwise would create a class distinction that is 
contrary to the fundamental principles of the Craft. 
I therefore refused approval of this amendment. 



I have received several complaints with reference to 
methods employed by salesmen who are touring the 
jurisdiction, selling various Masonic publications. Some 
of these books are recommended to the attention of the 
brethren in the Manual issued under the direction of the 
Committee on Education and for this reason it would 
appear to be necessary to draw the attention of the 
fraternity to the fact that while these publications are 
highly recommended, it is in no way compulsory that 
they should be purchased. To our younger brethren in 
particular I would repeat that, desirable as it may be for 
each student of Freemasonry to secure a small Masonic 
library, it is not compulsory upon any brother to spend 
money in the purchase of Masonic publications. 

Furthermore, information has reached me that in 
some cases the secretaries of lodges have furnished these 
book salesmen with lists of the members of their lodges. 
It ought not to be necessary for me to repeat what has 
been so often laid down by my predecessors in office, that 
no secretary of a lodge has any right to hand out informa- 
tion of this kind to any person for purposes of private 
gain and that this applies to book salesmen as well as all 
others. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 57 

I have noted with interest and pleasure the frequent 
interchange of visits between lodges in this jurisdiction 
and those in the neighbouring jurisdictions and it has 
been brought to my attention that there is some un- 
certainty in the minds of Masters as to the proper pro- 
cedure to be observed on occasions of this kind. It is, 
of course, well understood that a foreign lodge may 
exemplify but cannot confer degrees except upon can- 
didates of its own and that in all cases the proper permis- 
sions must be obtained. In order to avoid any possi- 
bility of misunderstanding I would suggest therefore that 
whenever a lodge in this jurisdiction intends to visit as a 
lodge in another jurisdiction or to receive a visit from a 
lodge in another jurisdiction it should communicate with 
the Grand Secretary, and he will advise as to what 
permits should be secured. 



I found it necessary during the year to once more take 
a firm stand in the matter of allowing our brethren to 
participate as Masons in funerals at which other organiza- 
tions were appearing. Section 232 of the Constitution is 
most explicit in its declaration that Masons cannot join 
with any other societies or organizations in the conduct 
of a Masonic funeral. The matter has been ruled upon 
over and over again by successive Grand Masters, but it 
may be well to once more point out that a Masonic 
funeral within the meaning of the Constitution is a 
funeral at which Masonic brethren appear clothed as 
Masons or at which they conduct our Masonic funeral 
service. Putting it quite explicitly then, it should again 
be stated that the Masonic fraternity cannot appear 
clothed as Masons nor conduct any portion of the Ma- 
sonic funeral service when any other society is taking any 
part whatever in the funeral ceremonies or walking in the 
procession as an organization or appearing in regalia. 

By a ruling made in 1916, this prohibition is definitely 
extended to cover military funerals. With all respect, 
I suggest that it would be well to annul this particular 
ruling. It is repeatedly disregarded in practice and 
perhaps does not represent the present opinion of Grand 
Lodge in the matter of funerals held under military 
auspices. 



.5S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

In this connection may I suggest that the time has 
arrived for the preparation of a new Book of Rulings. 
The present little volume was prepared in 1921 and, 
while completely adequate at that time, it is now out- 
moded in the sense that many important rulings have 
been promulgated since and these later rulings can only 
be consulted by laboriously wading through the Pro- 
ceedings of subsequent years. I recommend therefore 
that a Committee be authorized to edit and annotate a 
new and up-to-date record of the rulings of Grand 
Masters, to be included in the Book of Constitution. 



Through the courtesy of the lodge secretaries I have 
had an opportunity of reading many hundreds of lodge 
notices and as a result of my study thereof I am disposed 
to offer a word or two of advice to some of the Masters, 
who appear to be in danger of forgetting that what goes 
on in the lodge is of outstanding import and that the 
after-programmes are purely secondary. It matters 
not how eloquent a speaker is provided nor how many 
entertainers are on the dinner programmes, the Wor- 
shipful Master has failed in his duty to his lodge unless 
he has put the best of his efforts to the great task of 
making Masons in the only place they can be made — at 
the altars of Freemasonry. There is a place in Masonry 
— and a large place — for social mirth and for entertain- 
ment, but Masters should not lose their sense of pro- 
portion in this matter. A Masonic lodge is an organiza- 
tion unique alike in its polity, its ideas, its dignity, its 
aims and its methods of attaining these aims. I suggest 
that we keep it so and that least of all is it necessary in 
drawing up either our lodge summonses or our social 
programmes to imitate the methods of any other organ- 
ization or institution. 

Indeed it is a question fairly open for debate as to 
whether there is any necessity for inviting those who are 
not Masons to take part in our dinner programmes. 
There are certain risks involved in so doing and the 
Master who confines both his speakers and his enter- 
tainers to members of the Craft is assuredly treading the 
less dangerous path. It should at least be pointed out 
to the Masters of the lodges that they are held responsible 
for the whole of the proceedings at our gatherings, and a 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1934 



good deal of criticism and some occasional unpleasantness 
might be avoided if the Masters would intelligently 
exercise the control that is placed in their hands in this 
matter. 



My perusal of the monthly notices of the lodges has 
also brought me to a realization of the splendid manner 
in which so many of them are responding to the scheme 
of Masonic Education as laid down by Grand Lodge. 
From one end of the jurisdiction to the other the brethren 
are engaging as never before in a serious study of our 
history, our traditions, our symbolism and our philosophy 
and the result cannot but be wonderfully stimulating. 
Much has been done — much still remains to be done and 
unquestionably will be done under the careful supervision 
of the Committee on Masonic Education, to whose efforts 
I wish to pay this public tribute of appreciation. 

My attention has been called to a practice carried 
out in a few of our lodges, notably Doric Lodge, No. 121, 
Brantford, which has been proved by experience to be so 
beneficial in its effects that I think the matter should be 
laid before Grand Lodge in the hope that many other of 
the constituent lodges will adopt the same course. 
On the death of a member of the lodge, a brother who has 
been officially charged with the duty immediately visits 
the widow to proffer his advice and experience. This 
advice concerns itself initially with such matters as the 
saving of needless expense in connection with the funeral 
and later on with the supervision and direction of the 
estate, resulting quite often in an incalculable benefit to 
the family of the deceased. Most of us can recall cases 
where a brother's widow or children have been involved 
in many troubles, perhaps reduced to poverty, for the 
lack of some wise counsel which might have been given at 
the proper time and which would have been forthcoming 
if the members of the lodge had properly appreciated 
their Masonic duties. This matter deeply concerns 
every lodge throughout the jurisdiction, and I strongly 
recommend that each lodge should set up a committee 
whose duty it shall be to act promptly as the need arises. 
It is perhaps unnecessary to add that such a committee 
should consist of brothers who are distinguished by a 
warm spirit of sympathy, a willingness to devote some 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

time to the problem in hand and, above all, sufficient 
business experience to make their advice and assistance 
worth while. 

Grand Lodge will remember that at the Communica- 
tion held at London in 1928 the then Grand Master, the 
late M.W. Bro., the Hon. John S. Martin, made a special 
effort to honor the veteran Past Masters of the Craft, on 
which occasion about one hundred and twenty-five Past 
Masters who had attained the age of seventy years were 
presented with a small commemorative jewel. From 
time to time since then the Grand Secretary has been 
asked to supply similar jewels for other Past Masters who 
have since reached the age of seventy years. The supply 
of these jewels has now been exhausted and no more will 
be secured as they were intended only as mementos of 
that particular occasion. 

The Long Service Medal which is presented to Past 
Masters who have been such for a fifty year period is still 
deservedly regarded as a badge of particular honor, 
indicating as it does a half century of service to the Craft 
in the capacity of a Past Master. It seems to me that 
this Grand Lodge might well honor all brethren who have 
been in continuous connection with Masonry for a 
period of fifty years, and as the so-called Veteran's Jewel 
of the year 1928 is now discontinued, I recommend that 
this Grand Lodge approve the issue of a Veteran's Jewel 
to which all members of the Craft who have completed 
fifty years of uninterrupted connection therewith will be 
entitled. The Jewel should be handed to a brother only 
after his eligibility therefor has been checked by the 
Grand Secretary's office and it should be of a copyrighted 
design approved by Grand Lodge, from whom alone it 
could be secured at cost price by those lodges anxious 
thus to honor their veteran members. Enquiries made 
during the year to the secretaries of the lodges divulged 
the fact that there are at least five or six hundred of our 
brethren who could qualify for a jewel of this kind, and I 
venture to suggest that no better or more appreciated 
method could be devised for honoring these older 
brethren who have grown grey in their connection with 
Masonry. 

You will probably not be surprised to learn that the 
calls upon our funds for benevolent purposes continue to 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 61 

grow and are a source of anxious concern. The remark- 
ably efficient manner in which this financial strain is 
being taken care of should be a source of utmost satis- 
faction to the Craft. The income from the Semi- 
centennial and Memorial funds has been of the greatest 
service in assisting us to adequately handle this problem 
and I think that it is proper that the attention of the 
Craft should be again directed towards these Funds. 
The time is perhaps not opportune for attempting any 
increase by way of a general subscription, but I do 
believe that those of the brethren who are in a position 
to do so — and we have many such — should remember 
the Memorial Fund in drawing up their wills. This 
great Fund is a perpetual endowment and the principal 
is to be invested for all time, the income only being at the 
disposal of the fraternity and strictly for benevolent 
purposes. I could imagine no more satisfactory and 
altogether lovely method by which to honor the charit- 
able teachings of the Craft than for each of us to provide 
in our last will that out of our estates a sum, be it large 
or small, should be handed over to the Memorial Fund of 
the Grand Lodge of Canada, in the certain knowledge 
that for all time to come the income on such monies will 
assist in taking care of some aged brother or some dis- 
tressed and helpless widow or in the upbringing and 
education of some fatherless child. Such permanent 
charitable endowments have for centuries been the 
glory of English Masonry. By this means each member of 
the fraternity here in Canada would be afforded through 
the medium of our Memorial Fund an opportunity of 
having a part in a charity of exactly similar terms. 

Acknowledgement should be made of the very hand- 
some set of gavels which are in use at this Communication 
of Grand Lodge and which are the gift of R.W. Bro. Sir 
George McLaren Brown, of London, England, Honorary 
Past Grand Deacon of the United Grand Lodge of 
England and Past Grand Registrar of our own Grand 
Lodge. These handsome gavels are made out of wood 
taken from the grand staircase of the old Freemasons' 
Hall on Great Queen Street in London. They will be 
cherished by us as mementoes alike of that shrine of 
British Freemasonry and of a brother esteemed by us all 
for his sturdy Canadianism and his great services to this 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Grand Lodge and to Canadian Masons during the trying 
davs of the Great War. 



In December last I received word from R.W. Bro. 
T. A. Carson, of Toronto, that on the advice of his 
physician he was compelled to resign from the Board of 
General Purposes, to which he had been elected at the 
last Communication of Grand Lodge. Bro. Carson's 
services to Freemasonry in many other capacities have 
been so distinguished, I am sure his resignation was a 
real loss to the Board. I regretfully accepted the 
resignation and appointed R.W. Bro. Charles S. Ham- 
ilton, of Toronto, to fill out the unexpired portion of Bro. 
Carson's term as a member of the Board. 

I have also received a letter from R.W. Bro. C. A. 
Seager in which he intimates that the pressure on his 
time in connection with his duties as Lord Bishop of the 
Diocese of Huron will render it necessary for him to 
withdraw from membership on the Board of General 
Purposes at this Communication of Grand Lodge. 
The report which R.W. Bro. Seager will present at this 
Communication in his capacity as Chairman of the 
Committee on the Condition of Masonrv will be the 
third report that we have received from this distinguished 
brother, each of them a masterpiece alike in phraseology 
and in subject matter. I regret exceedingly that our 
Board is to lose the services of R.W. Bro. Seager, but 
I am happy in the knowledge that his interest in the 
Craft will continue unabated. 

In February last I was shocked to learn that R.W. 
Bro. W. M. Logan, our efficient and much beloved 
Grand Secretary, was seriously ill and that an immediate 
operation was necessary. While regretting the necessitv 
for doing so, I unhesitatingly granted R.W. Bro. Logan 
leave of absence in order that he might have ample 
opportunity to regain his health and strength. We are 
indeed happy to know that Bro. Logan has successfully 
passed through this trying experience, and while he has 
not as yet fully regained his customary health and 
strength we rejoice in the thought that his feet are firmly 
set on the highroad towards complete recovery. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 63 

During Bro. Logan's long illness it became necessary 
to make arrangements to carry on the duties of his im- 
portant office. On my urgent request, M.W. Bro. 
Dargavel took over the duties of Acting Grand Secretary, 
while at the same time continuing to look after his work 
as Supervisor of Benevolence. I do not know that we 
have any other brother who could have helped us out in 
this emergency with such efficiency and cordial good 
will. He has carried a double load for several trying 
months and I feel a deep sense of gratitude to M.W. 
Bro. Dargavel, a sentiment in which I am sure Grand 
Lodge will heartily concur. 

In December I had the pleasure of attending the 
Quarterly Communication of the Grand Lodge of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, held at Boston. I 
was accompanied by R.W. Bro. Dunlop, of Toronto, and 
I know he will agree with me in the statement that we 
enjoyed a particularly delightful visit with our brethren 
of this ancient Grand Lodge, who during the past year 
celebrated their Two Hundredth Anniversary. It has 
been the privilege of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario throughout its existence to enjoy 
especially cordial relations with the Grand Lodge of 
Massachusetts. Nearly all of our Past Grand Masters 
cherish pleasant memories of the hospitality of the 
brethren of Massachusetts, and I am delighted that at 
this Communication we have the pleasure of entertaining 
M.W. Bro. Curtis Chipman, the Grand Master of 
Massachusetts, who is with us to-day, accompanied bv 
his Grand Marshal, R.W. Bro. McKechnie. The 
latter's claim upon our affections is not lessened by the 
fact that he was born in the town of Durham, Ontario. 

In February I visited the Annual Communication of 
the Grand Lodge of Quebec at Montreal, with which 
Grand Lodge we have enjoyed for very many years the 
happiest relations. I was accompanied by the Deputy 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. A. J. Anderson. We had a 
very pleasant time on that occasion and it is a pleasure 
to know that to-day we are honoured by the presence of 
M.W. Bro. Malcolm A. Campbell, the Grand Master of 
Quebec, who is accompanied by a distinguished delegation 
representing Masonry in our sister province to the east. 



64 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Previous engagements prevented me from accepting 
a cordial invitation to visit our old friends of the Grand 
Lodge of Michigan, at their annual Comunication in the 
month of May. At my request R.W. Bro. B. B. Hodge, 
of Hamilton, Grand Junior Warden, and R.W. Bro. 
T. C. Wardley, of Elora, represented our Grand Lodge on 
this occasion. They were received with every evidence 
of affectionate welcome and spent a most interesting and 
pleasant two days. We expect to have to-day the honor 
of entertaining an important delegation representing the 
Grand Lodge of Michigan, whom I commend to your 
kindliest hospitality. 



In closing, may I be permitted a personal note, for I 
desire to acknowledge with gratitude the many kind- 
nesses that have been extended to me during the past 
year. I have attended gatherings of Freemasons in no 
less than twenty-six out of the thirty-four Districts, 
many districts being visited several times. It has been 
said that the brother who has the distinguished honor to 
occupy the position of Grand Master of the Grand Lodge 
of Canada in the Province of Ontario is peculiarly 
subjected to tremendous strains upon his time and his 
physical and mental powers. While this is unques- 
tionably true, yet I can repeat with all sincerity what 
has been the verdict of each of my predecessors in this 
office, that any sacrifices that we are called upon to make 
are more than compensated for by the loyalty, the 
cordiality and even the affection which you so generously 
shower upon your Grand Master. For this great gift 
of your affectionate regard I wish to thank the fraternity 
from the bottom of my heart. 

FRANK A COPUS, 

Grand Master.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON 
REDISTRIBUTION OF DISTRICTS 

The special committee appointed to report on 
the redistribution and re-arrangement of lodges in 
certain districts, reported as follows through the 
Chairman, M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario: 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Committee on Petitions and Divisions of 
Districts beg to submit their recommendations: 

(1) Wc have considered the Petition from the 
Past Masters Association of the City of Toronto 
for an increase in the number of Toronto Districts, 
but as the Committee of this Association, which is 
working on a plan for this Division, have suggested 
further consideration, we recommend that no action 
be taken at this Annual Communication. 

(2) Alma Lodge Xo. 72, Gait, has asked per- 
mission to withdraw the Petition presented at the 
last Annual Communication. We recommend that 
this request for withdrawal be granted. 

(3) Your Committee was authorized at the last 
Annual Communication to consider a re-distribu- 
tion of the lodges in the four Northern Districts 
of Algoma, Muskoka, Nipissing and Temiskaming. 

After giving this matter due consideration, we 
have concluded that the Nipissing and Temis- 
kaming Districts, as at present constituted, are too 
large to be efficiently served by the District Deputy 
Grand Master; and to overcome the great distances 
to be covered in visiting the Lodges in these 
Districts, we recommend : 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

(a) That as the Algoma District consists of 
only seven lodges, all situated in the Cities of 
Port Arthur and Fort William, Hornpayne Lodge 
Xo. 636 be transferred from the Xipissing to the 
Algoma District. 

(b) We are also of the opinion that a new 
District should be formed to include Lodges from 
both the Xipissing and the Temiskaming Districts, 
and we so recommend, and that it be Resolved that 
the Lodges of these said Xorthern Districts be 
distributed as follows :

Reports of the District Deputy 
Grand Masters 



ALGOMA DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren. — 

In presenting my report on the condition of 
Masonry in Algoma District for the year ending 
June, 1934, may I first of all express my apprecia- 
tion and sincere gratitude for the honor conferred 
upon me by the brethren of this District, in 
electing me to the important office of District 
representative of the Most Worshipful, the Grand 
Master, and also for the many kindly courtesies 
extended, as well as for the hearty co-operation of 
all my brethren during my term of office. 

My first official duty on my return from Grand 
Lodge, was to appoint Wor. Bro. S. H. Green 
my District Secretary, and Wor. Bro. John H. 
Wilson, District Chaplain, and I wish to take this 
opportunity of thanking them most heartily for their 
valuable assistance during the year. 

The beginning of my active duties which com- 
menced in September, was most fittingly marked by 
a visit from the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master, whom I had the honor and pleasure to 
present to a joint meeting of Fort William Lodge 
No. 415, Royal Lodge No. 453, Connaught Lodge 
No. 511 and Kaministiquia Lodge No. 584, all of 
Fort William, which was held in the Auditorium 
of the Fort William City Hall, on the evening of 
September 7th. Accompanying the Grand Master, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 103 

was R.W. Bro. W. M. Logan, Grand Secretary. 
There were upward of two hundred brethren in 
attendance who listened with rapt attention to a 
very eloquent address by the Most Worshipful, the 
Grand Master, which made, I am sure, a lasting 
impression, and which paved the way to the suc- 
cess and growth of interest in Masonry in this 
District in the year just closed. The address of the 
Grand Master was very ably supplemented by 
R.W. Bro. W. M. Logan, Grand Secretary. The 
brethren then adjourned to the Norman Room of 
the Royal Edward Hotel, where a sumptious ban- 
quet was partaken of. Here again, we were favored 
with a very eloquent and inspiring address by the 
Grand Master and Grand Secretary. The singing 
of Auld Lang Syne brought a very enjoyable 
evening to a close. 

On Friday evening, SeptemberSth, I again had the 
honor and pleasure of introducing the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master to a joint meeting of Shuniah 
Lodge No. 287, Port Arthur Lodge No. 499 and 
Thunder Bay Lodge No. 618, held in the Masonic 
Temple, Port Arthur. This meeting was also, 
largely attended, the accommodation being taxed to 
capacity. Here again, the brethren of Port Arthur 
listened to an address of very high order by the 
Grand Master, admonishing the brethren to keep 
constantly before them, the ideals of Freemasonry 
and all it stands for. This address, delivered as 
only Most Worshipful Brother Copus, could, was 
well received as evidenced by the applause. The 
Grand Master then presented R.W. Bro. A. Rome, 
Past Grand Senior Warden, with a Veteran's 
Jewel, he being an active Past Master over seventy 
vears of age. A similar jewel was also presented to 
R.W. Bro. Geo. H. Coo, a Past District Deputy 
Grand Master of Algoma District. This presenta- 
tion was made at the home of R.W. Bro. Coo, he 
being unable, on account of ill-health to attend the 
meeting. Following the address of the Most Wor- 
shipful the Grand Master, R.W. Bro. W. M. Logan 
very eloquently addressed the brethren, after which 
the lodge was closed and the brethren adjourned to 



104 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the Prince Arthur Hotel where a banquet was 
enjoyed. Here again, we had the pleasure of hear- 
ing a most instructive and inspiring address by the 
Grand Master as well as an address by R.W. Bro. 
Logan on the composition of Grand Lodge. The 
singing of Auld Lang Syne about one a.m. brought 
another very instructive and enjoyable evening to a 
close. 

My first official visit was to Kaministiquia 
Lodge Xo. 584 on September 19th, where together 
with my secretary and chaplain, I was ably intro- 
duced to the Wor. Master, W. Bro. A. Sinclair, 
by W. Bro. Chas. Boyle, and was most graciously 
received. The speaker of the evening was V.W. 
Bro. A. P. Freed, who delivered a very interesting 
address on Grand Lodge, dealing with the work of 
the various Grand Lodge committees. There being 
no degree work, I also addressed the brethren on 
the programme of Masonic Education as outlined 
by the Grand Lodge committee on Masonic Educa- 
tion. The officers are all well qualified in their 
work and the lodge is to be congratulated on its 
secretary, W. Bro. N. B. Darrell, whose records are 
well and neatly kept. The finances of the lodge are 
in a fair condition, considering the depressing times 
through which we are passing, and the officers and 
members are carrying out the true spirit and prin- 
ciples of Masonry. On January 16th I attended 
the ceremony of investiture and installation of the 
Worshipful Master and officers of this lodge, which 
was very ably conducted by R.W. Bro. M. F. 
Beyers, Past District Deputy Grand Master of 
Algoma District and a Pastmaster of the lodge. 
I feel sure that Kaministiquia Lodge will continue 
to prosper under the guidance of its new Worshipful 
Master, W. Bro. J. F. Spittlehouse. 

On October 5th I made my official visit to 
Thunder Bay Lodge No. 618, being introduced by 
R.W. Bro. Dr. C. S. McComb, and was accorded 
the Grand Honors. The Fellowcraft degree was 
conferred in a very creditable manner by the 
Worshipful Master, W. Bro. H. B. Hardy and his 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 105 

staff of officers. After the conferring of the degree, 
I addressed the lodge on Masonic Education, which 
was well received, the brethren evincing a marked 
interest in this important branch of Masonic 
endeavor. The records of the lodge are in the 
capable hands of Bro. W. J. Matthews, whose 
duties as secretary are a credit and inspiration to 
the lodge. The finances of the lodge are in a fair 
condition considering this is the junior lodge of the 
District, and the officers are very efficient and 
energetic. On December 7th, I attended the In- 
stallation and Investiture of the Worshipful Master 
and officers of this lodge, taking a small active part 
in the ceremony which was very ably conducted bv 
R.W. Bro. Dr. C. S. McComb, Past District 
Deputy Grand Master of Algoma District and a 
Pastmaster of Thunder Bay Lodge. The new 
officers are very efficient and painstaking and I am 
sure the lodge will continue to prosper under the 
leadership of the new Worshipful Master, W. Bro. 
Walter H. Russell. 

On December 27th, it was my pleasure and 
privilege to preside at the Installation and Investi- 
ture of the Worshipful Masters and officers of Fort 
William Lodge No. 415 and Connaught Lodge No. 
511, which was held jointly in the Masonic Temple, 
Fort William, and I was similarly honored the fol- 
lowing evening when I presided at a similar cere- 
mony in my mother lodge, Port Arthur No. 499. 
On both occasions I was very ably assisted by Past 
District Deputy Grand Masters and by Past- 
masters of the various lodges of the district. 

My next official visit was on February 6th, 
when I attended Shuniah Lodge No. 287, the 
mother lodge of the district, accompanied by my 
secretary and chaplain. I was introduced by R.W. 
Bro. Geo. Blanchard, Past District Deputy Grand 
Master, and was most graciouslv received bv the 
Worshipful Master, W. Bro. A. E. Holland. At 
this meeting, W. Bro. Chas. Goodeve delivered a 
very inspiring and edifying address on the principles 
and ideals of Masonry. The finances of the lodge 



106 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

are in excellent condition. Shuniah lodge owns the 
Masonic Temple at Port Arthur, which does credit 
to the efforts of the pioneer lodge of the district. 
The officers are all painstaking and attentive to 
their respective duties, and the lodge is to be par- 
ticularly congratulated on its secretary, V.W. Bro. 
A. P. Freed, whose zeal for Masonry is so manifest 
in all his Masonic Associations. 

On February 14th, accompanied by my secre- 
tary and chaplain, I made my official visit to Fort 
William Lodge No. 415 and was introduced to the 
Worshipful Master, W. Bro. A. Winn, by W. Bro. 
F. Birch, Immediate Pastmaster of the lodge. There 
being no degree work, Bro. A. Cheeseman of Key- 
stone Lodge No. 412, Sault Ste. Marie, gave a very 
interesting and educational address on his exper- 
iences in the Antarctic as a pilot with the Wilkins- 
Hurst expedition, and briefly outlined the various 
stages of the trip, and described the habitation in 
these barren wastes at the bottom of the world. 
I then addressed the brethren on varied subjects 
including arrears of dues, the care in selecting 
proper material for our lodges, and our desire to 
maintain the high order and dignity of the Craft, 
concluding with a few thoughts on Masonic Educa- 
tion. This lodge is officered by a very capable 
staff of officers, and the lodge owns the majority 
of the stock in the Temple Building. W. Bro. C. E. 
Coombes fulfils his duties as secretary in a very 
creditable and efficient manner, his lodge records 
and books being very accurately and neatly kept. 
The finances of the lodge are in good condition. 

On March 7th I officially visited Royal Lodge 
No. 453, where together with my secretary and 
chaplain I was introduced to the Worshipful Master, 
W. Bro. R. vS. Kirkup, by W. Bro. J. R. Lumby, 
and accorded the Grand honors. At this meeting 
the third degree was conferred on a candidate by 
members of the Pastmasters Association resident in 
Port Arthur, with myself in the chair of King 
Solomon. After the ceremony of the degree, I 
addressed the brethren briefly on the principles and 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1934 107 

aims of Masonry and of Masonic Education. The 
books of the lodge are in the capable hands of W. 
Bro. J. H. Irwin, and are neatly and accurately 
kept, and its finances are in good condition. This 
lodge sends out greeting cards at Christmas-time 
to the widows of their deceased brethren, which is a 
very thoughtful and commendable gesture. The 
officers are well skilldd and efficient in their respec- 
tive duties. 

My next official visit was to Port 'Arthur Lodge 
No. 499 on March 12th, when together with my 
secretary and chaplain, I was warmly introduced to 
the Worshipful Master, W. Bro. E. L. Wilson, by 
R.W. Bro. A. Rome, Past Grand Senior Warden. 
Needless to say, I was royally received and wel- 
comed, and after being tendered the Grand honors 
befitting my Masonic rank, was invited to assume 
the gavel in my mother lodge, which I had laid 
down in December 1926. There being no degree 
work, I had the Worshipful Master raise the lodge 
to the third degree which was very efficiently done 
by W. Bro. E. L. Wilson and his officers. At the 
request of the Worshipful Master, I gave the 
brethren the correct wording of the penalties of the 
several degrees. I then addressed the brethren on 
the purposes of Masonry, the selection of the 
proper Masonic material, and the proper use of the 
ballot which was well received. After the meeting 
the brethren, retired to the banquet room for a 
fourth degree, at which we were favored with a 
very instructive and informative address by W. 
Bro. J. R. Lumby on the mining activities of 
Northern Ontario in the late years of the nine- 
teenth century. The finances of the lodge are in 
good condition, and the records and books which 
are accurately and neatly kept, are in the able and 
experienced hands of R.W. Bro. A. Rome. The 
lodge prides itself not only on its ritualistic work, 
but also on its benevolence. 

On April 16th, accompanied by my District 
secretary and chaplain, I made my last official visit 
to Connaught Lodge No. 511, and was introduced 



10S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

to the Worshipful Master, W. Bro. W. Tabor, bv 
\Y. Bro. W. Treslove, immediate Past Master of the 
lodge. After having been accorded the Grand 
honors and most warmly welcomed by the Wor- 
shipful Master, I was invited to assume the gavel. 
The ballot was successfully passed on the applica- 
tion of a candidate for initiation. There being no 
degree work, I had the Worshipful Master and his 
officers raise the lodge to the third degree, which 
was well done. W. Bro. A. Knutson of Thunder 
Bay Lodge Xo. 618 delivered a very interesting 
and amusing address on Masonic Lodge activities 
during the 18th and early 19th centuries, which 
occasioned considerable mirth and much applause 
from the brethren. I then addressed the lodge on 
Masonry in general. The officers of the lodge are 
painstaking and efficient, and the records and 
books of the lodge are very accurately and neatly 
kept by W. Bro. E. C. Schoales. Connaught lodge 
anticipates this year, to be able to discharge the 
mortgage on their Masonic Hall, which reflects 
great credit and is very commendable, considering 
the depressing times we have passed through the 
past four years. 

Co-incident with all my official visits, were the 
annual visits of the Pastmaster's Association of 
Fort William and Port Arthur to the various lodges, 
and I take this opportunity to thank the Associa- 
tion for its wonderful co-operation and support in 
supplying speakers whenever asked to do so by the 
various lodges of the district. This is a very active 
Association and is a very great asset to the Ma- 
sonic Education of the District. The Association 
has a regular programme outlined by its President 
and Executive Committee each January, and visits 
each lodge in the district in a body once every year. 
Three of my official visits were graced by speakers 
selected from this Association, and I wish to per- 
sonally thank the Presidents, W. Bro. H. Stan- 
worth and W. Bro. Roy Hegel for the courtesies so 
extended. The Past Masters' Association of Fort 
William and Port Arthur has a wonderful field for 
its work in this district, and invites the various 
lodges to solicit anv services it can render. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 109 

I am pleased to report that complete harmony 
prevails in all the lodges throughout the district, 
in fact during my whole term of office, I have not 
been asked to rule on even one contentious point. 
The ruling masters and officers are courteous, pains- 
taking and energetic, and as I have witnessed 
degrees conferred in all lodges in the district, I can 
vouch for the uniformity and efficiency of the 
ceremonies of the three degrees. I consider the 
condition of Masonry in Algoma District to be 
very healthy and satisfactory. While candidates 
presenting themselves for our mysteries and cere- 
monies have been fewer, and the payment of dues 
by the brethren a little more difficult, still the work 
is being carried on, and the lodges have met the 
added calls for benevolence made upon them with 
courage and alacrity, proving that one of our 
greatest fundamental principles is not being lost 
sight of. The secretaries of the various lodges are 
very careful, courteous, painstaking and efficient, 
and my District Secretary reports that the minute 
books and records of the lodges are very neatly and 
accurately kept, and that he was extended every 
courtesy and assistance while making his inspection. 

I officially visited all the lodges in the district 
once, as well as attending sixty-eight other Ma- 
sonic engagements during my term of office. I also 
attended the Installation of the Worshipful Masters 
and the Investiture of the officers in all the lodges 
of the district, officiating at three of these instal- 
lation ceremonies. On all my visits, official and 
otherwise, I have been met with the utmost kind- 
ness and courtesy, and accorded the honors befit- 
ting the district representative of the Most Wor- 
shipful, the Grand Master. When criticism was 
necessary it was as kindly taken as it was kindly 
meant. I wish to thank the various lodges most 
sincerely for their graciousness, as well as thanking 
them for the many kindnesses and courtesies ex- 
tended to my wife in connection with their annual 
"Ladies' Nights" or "At Homes". 

I also thank the Past District Deputy Grand 
Masters for their able counsel and support as well 



110 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

as the Past Masters of the various lodges, which 
have lightened the burdens of my office consider- 
ably. The mailing of the notices to me of the 
meetings of the lodges has been promptly and 
regularly done by the secretaries, and any cor- 
respondence with the lodges has been promptly 
answered or acknowledged. 

On Thursday June 14th, I called a meeting of 
the members of Grand Lodge in this district at 
which I presided. This meeting was held in the 
Masonic Temple at Port Arthur, and there was a 
goodly representation from all the lodges in the 
district. Owing to the inability, on account of the 
great distances necessary to travel to attend the 
Grand Lodge Communication, I called this meeting 
for the purpose of discussing any matters of interest 
to Algoma District. The harmony and fraternal 
feeling for our Grand Lodge among the Grand 
Lodge members of this district is most commend- 
able. 

Sunday Observance fittingly marked the close 
of Masonic activity for the season in the district, 
when the three lodges of Port Arthur, under the 
auspices of Shuniah Lodge No. 287 attended Divine 
Worship at the First Baptist Church at 11 a.m. 
Sunday June 24th, being the Festival of St. John 
the Baptist, at which there was a large attendance 
of the brethren. On this occasion, the brethren 
were favored with a very edifying and inspiring 
sermon by the minister, the Rev. G. M. Edwards, 
B.A., B.Th., and the commendable attention given 
to his address, which was suitable to the occasion, 
was proof only too ample, that it was well taken 
and impressive from both a Spiritual and a Ma- 
sonic standpoint. 

During September last, I addressed all lodges 
in the district on Masonic Education, as well as 
causing the report of the Board on Masonic Educa- 
tion as set forth in the 1933 Proceedings to be read 
in all lodges. I took the lead in this important 
work, and outlined the material and work to be 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 111 

studied, as laid down by R.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, 
and did all in my power, leaving no stone unturned, 
to develop and encourage interest to induce the 
brethren to seek after the symbolism and tradition 
of our first degree ceremonies as outlined in the 
"Manual for Instructors". Active and energetic 
committees were immediately appointed in all 
lodges which immediately began to function, in 
most cases under the chairmanship of a Pastmaster. 
Twenty-four Masonic Educational meetings were 
held during my term of office at which there was a 
goodly average attendance. Five of these meetings 
were conducted by "Side-benchers", sixteen by 
Pastmasters of the various lodges and of the Past- 
masters' Association, and three by myself. I am 
very gratified with what has been accomplished in 
Masonic Education this past year, and wish to 
thank the Masonic Educational Committees of the 
various lodges and the Pastmasters' Association for 
their whole-hearted co-operation and support in 
laying the foundations for this wonderful work, 
which has every evidence of becoming an important 
factor in the advancement of Masonic knowledge 
and interest in this district, and I pray that the 
activity in this important work shall not wane. I 
covered several of the "High Lights" in Most 
W. Bro. Herrington's "History of the Grand Lodge 
of Canada in Ontario" as material for my re- 
sponses to the Toast to Grand Lodge on eleven or 
twelve occasions, thus covering R.W. Bro. Dun- 
lop's request in the matter of the history of our 
Grand Lodge. A few of the reports from the 19.33 
Proceedings or interesting portions of them, were 
read in some of the lodges. I also did all in my 
power to encourage the inter-visitation of lodges, 
and the results have been gratifying. 

I would like to report at this time my appreci- 
ation of the efforts of the Masons of Schreiber, who 
are not in sufficient numbers to support a lodge. 
These brethren, several years ago, organized what 
they term themselves, a "Doric Club" by means of 
which they keep alive the spirit of Masonry in 
their communitv. The Masons resident at Hvdro 



112 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

recently organized a "Harmony Club", by which 
the spirit of Masonry in Hydro is kept in an active 
condition. The Hydro Electric Power Commission, 
last fall, very gracefully gave its consent to allow 
the members of Harmony Club to construct a club 
house for their use on the Hydro Electric property, 
and I believe, as soon as this club house is com- 
pleted, a request will be made to have a Lodge of 
Instruction meet there to asist the members, and 
brush them up in the work. The majority of the 
members of both of these clubs belong to lodges 
located at the Head of the Lakes. 

With a regret that is felt most keenly by every 
Mason in the district I report the passing to the 
Grand Lodge above of R.W. Bro. Geo. H. Coo, a 
Past District Deputy Grand Master of Algoma 
District, and a Past Master of Fort William Lodge 
Xo. 415, who was called to rest on December 26th 
last. It was only on September 8th that I accom- 
panied the Grand Master and Grand Secretary to 
R.W. Bro. Coo's residence where we had repaired 
for the Grand Master to present him with a long 
service medal, as, owing to ill-health he was unable 
to be present at the joint meeting held in Fort 
William the night before. We all miss R.W. Bro. 
Coo's congenial presence amongst us, not only as a 
Mason, but as a citizen. 

On May 8th last, another very distinguished 
and energetic Mason laid down the gavel of this 
life to ascend to the Grand Lodge above, in the 
person of R.W. Bro. J. W. Morgan, a Past District 
Deputy Grand Master of Algoma District and 
thirty-six years a Past Master of Shuniah Lodge 
Xo. 287, the mother lodge of this district. R.W. 
Bro. Morgan was another brother very firm in his 
Masonic convictions, and his removal from our 
midst is felt with deep regret. 

It is not my intention to lengthen my report 
further by quoting statistics covering this district, 
as they appear elsewhere in these proceedings. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO 1934 113 

In conclusion, allow me once more to express 
my sincere thanks and appreciation of the co- 
operation and support I have enjoyed from all of 
my brethren throughout the district, and may I 
bespeak for my successor, the same loyal support 
and fraternal consideration, which has made my 
years' work one of both pleasure and profit. Fin- 
ally, if I have, in my humble way, advanced in any 
small measure, the cause of Masonry in this district, 
then I shall feel that I have meritted the honor 
conferred upon me by the brethren of Algoma 
District a year ago, and which will, in itself, be my 
reward. 

All of which is fraternally submitted, 
J. W. MAUNDER, 

D.D.G.M. Algoma District.

BRANT DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: — 

I consider it a very great honor to have the 

privilege of presenting to you the report on the 

condition of Masonrv in Brant District for the 
year 1933-1934. 

May I be permitted at this time to express 
my heartfelt thanks to the members of my Mother 
Lodge, Wilson No. 113 at Waterford, and also to 
the Officers and Members of Brant District for the 
splendid and whole-hearted support they have given 
me throughout my entire tenure of office. 

On August 31st I invited the Masters and 
Wardens of my District to a dinner at Waterford. 
having as my main purpose the discussion of 
Masonic Education in the various lodges. A most 
pleasant and profitable evening was spent, and my 
grateful thanks are tendered to R.W. Bro. H. S. 
Tapscott of Brantford, Bro. the Rev. Dr. Baugh of 
Cayuga and others for their helpful and instructive 
addresses. 

At this time W. Bro. R. D. Gibson of Wilson 
Lodge No. 113, was appointed District Secretary 
and I would like to express my thanks to him for 
his untiring efforts and loyal support. He at- 
tended every visit of inspection and accompanied 
me on many fraternal visits. 

On every visit of inspection I was well 
pleased with the condition of Masonic knowledge 
and ritualistic work. I also found that Masonic 
Education was being taken up in a live and intel- 
ligent manner. The Past Masters of the different 
lodges at very regular in attendance and have a 
sustained interest in the work. 

The financial condition of the district, I found 
to be satisfactory. In every case the books are 



TORONTO. OXTARIO, 1034 115 

well kept, arrears of dues appear to be on the 
decrease. 

I was greatly gratified by the large number of 
visitors from all the lodges of my district on the 
occasion of the inspection of my Mother lodge, 
Wilson No. 113 at Waterford. About two hundred 
brethren were in attendance. The speaker of the 
evening was W. Bro. L. F. Stephens, K.C. of 
Hamilton whose scholarly address was much ap- 
preciated. 

On April 29th over two hundred masons as- 
sembled at Waterford from all parts of the district 
for the first Masonic Church Service held for Brant 
district. My grateful appreciation is tendered to 
R.W. Bro. Chas. A. Seager, Lord Bishop of Huron 
for his great kindness in coming from London to 
conduct and preach at this service. The service 
throughout was a real inspiration to those who had 
the good fortune to be present. 

Two outstanding events during my year were, 
my visit to Acacia Lodge, Hamilton on Oct. 13th 
when the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master 
honored that lodge with his presence. The second 
occasion was a Fraternal visit to Tecumseh Lodge, 
Stratford, on April 24th, when the only son of the 
Grand Master was initiated into Masonry. 

In conclusion, I feel that the past year has 
been the most pleasant and profitable one of my 
life. I have made and cemented friendships which 
will enrich immeasurably all the years to come. 

The rewards of my office have been far greater 
than any labours I have been called upon to per- 
form, and I can truly say like the Apostle of old 
"It is good for me to have been here." 

Fraternally yours, 

R. K. ROBINSON, 
D.D.G.M. Brant District. 



116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

BRUCE DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honour to submit my report of the 
state of Masonrv in Bruce District for the year 
1933-34. 

Allow me, first of all, to record my deep 
appreciation of having the honour to be the repre- 
sentative of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master 
in this District, and my sincere gratitude to the 
brethren for electing me to that high and important 
office. I also desire to record my appreciation of 
the close co-operation extended to me, on all 
occasions, by the Worshipful Master and Officers 
of each lodge throughout the District. 

My first official act upon assuming office was 
the appointment of W. Bro. H. C. Koebke as 
District Secretary and Rev. Bro. D. A. Cowan as 
District Chaplain. 

The most outstanding event of the District 
during the year took place at Port Elgin on October 
20th, when the Most Worshipful the Grand Master 
paid a fraternal visit to the brethren of Bruce 
District. On this occasion 220 brethren of the 
District and a large number of visiting brethren 
assembled to pay honour to Most Worshipful 
Brother Copus. It was an evening which will long 
remain in the memory of those present, the in- 
spiring address of our Grand Master carrying a 
message of encouragement and instruction to the 
heart and mind of each one privileged to hear it. 

Another important event was the District 
Church Service held on Sunday June 3rd, when 
approximately 225 brethren marched to the United 
Church, Port Elgin, where they were privileged to 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 117 

hear a masterly address by R.W. Bro. the Rt. Rev. 
C. A. Seager, Bishop of Huron, who spoke on the 
subject "God Hates Chaos", taking as his text 
the first three verses of Genesis, pointing out to 
the brethren the hand of God in the development 
of the world in its physical, social and religious 
aspects. 

Considering the very difficult times we have 
been passing through during the last four years, the 
condition of Masonry in this district is, on the 
whole, very satisfactory. In the majority of the 
lodges, however, there have been very few applica- 
tions for membership and each lodge, to a more or 
less extent, is faced with the problem of arrears of 
dues, but there is a distinct feeling of optimism 
as to the future. 

It gives me much pleasure in reporting that 
each lodge has appointed an Educational Com- 
mittee which is carrying on the important work of 
Masonic Education in their respective lodges. A 
detailed report has been forwarded to R.W. Bro. 
Dunlop in this connection, and I much appreciate 
his congratulations on the work accomplished in 
this regard. 

I have officially visited each lodge in the dis- 
trict, but before dealing with the individual lodges 
visited, may I record my deep appreciation of the 
very cordial reception I invariably received as the 
representative of the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master upon the occasion of my visits throughout 
the district, it being unmistakable evidence of the 
loyalty and devotion of the brethren to the office 
and person of our Grand Master. 

On November 3rd, 1933, I paid my first official 
visit, when I received a very cordial welcome from 
the brethren of Forest Lodge No. 393, Chesley. 
There being no degree work the W.M., Bro. R. B. 
Hetherington, opened and closed the lodge in the 
three degrees, after which, on the invitation of the 
Worshipful Master, I gave a lecture on the Sym- 



118 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUM, COMMUNICATION 

bolism of the First Degree. Forest Lodge has a 
large and convenient lodge room, suitably furnished. 
Interest in the Craft appears to be increasing in 
this lodge, and judging from the apparent enthus- 
iasm of its officers I feel assured the welfare of 
Forest Lodge rests in safe hands. The work of 
Bro. S. M. Ewart, the secretary is deserving of 
special mention. 

On November 20th I made the second of my 
official visits when I attended Clifford Lodge Xo. 
315. As there was no degree work, W. Bro. Scott 
opened and closed the lodge in the three degrees 
in a very creditable way, and all the officers appear 
to be capable and enthusiastic in their work. W. 
Bro. Eckensweiler is the secretary and his records 
are in splendid shape. 

On February 13th I visited Saugeen Lodge 
Xo. 197, Walkerton. I was accorded a very warm 
welcome by the brethren present. On account of 
weather conditions the attendance that evening 
was not large, it being impossible for the country 
brethren to attend as the roads in all directions 
were snowbound, but what was lacking in the 
number present was fully made up in the cordiality 
of their reception. The lodge was opened and 
closed in the three degrees by the W.M., Dr. E. R. 
Dixon in a very pleasing manner. The Junior 
Warden, Bro. F. T. James, gave the Junior Ward- 
en's lecture in a most commendable way, in fact all 
the officers of this lodge appear to be capable and 
efficient. The books and records are in first class 
condition, being under the charge of R.W. Bro. 
C. T. Boss. 

On February 23rd I visited Aldsworth Lodge, 
Xo. 235, Paisley. The first degree was conferred 
on a promising candidate by W. Bro. D. D. Camp- 
bell and his officers in a very satisfactory manner, 
each officer demonstrating an efficiency worthy of 
comment. Although the temperature was over 
thirty degrees below zero that evening, over forty 
brethren were present, several of them driving six 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1934 119 

to eight miles, which speaks volumes for their zeal 
for the Craft. The records of Aldsworth Lodge are 
well taken care of by Bro. T. R. McLennan, who is 
a very efficient secretary. The amount of arrears 
of dues is a problem which will have to receive the 
attention of this lodge. 

St. Lawrence Lodge Xo. 131, Southampton, 
was visited on March 13th. Although the road 
conditions that evening were such as to discourage 
the country brethren, there was a very satisfac- 
tory attendance, there being ten Past Masters of 
this lodge present. There being no degree work 
the lodge was opened and closed in the three 
degrees and R.W. Bro. Scott gave a very inter- 
esting talk on "The Constitution". The books of 
this lodge are well kept by W. Bro. W. H. Johns. 

On April 3rd I visited Cedar Lodge, Wiarton. 
The meeting was well attended, and the second 
degree was conferred on two candidates in a most 
satisfactory manner. Cedar Lodge is the largest 
lodge in the district, and zeal for the Craft is 
quite apparent in its officers, past masters and 
brethren generally. 

Maple Leaf Lodge No. 362, Tara was visited 
on April 23rd, where I was accompanied by a large 
number of brethren from Port Elgin. After open- 
ing and closing in the three degrees, which was 
very satisfactorily done by W. Bro. J. S. Hynd- 
man, the W.M., questions pertaining to the work 
were discussed, V.W. Bro. Reg. I. Shannon is a 
very efficient Secretary. 

On May 1st I visited Burns Lodge No. 436, 
Hepworth. The opening and closing in the three 
degrees was very satisfactorily performed by W. 
Bro. Barfoot. A fine feeling of fellowship is 
manifested in Burns Lodge, and the brethren are 
to be congratulated on the very fine new lodge 
room they now own. May I here give two ex- 
amples of the zeal for Masonry displayed by 
brethren of this lodge. Bro. R. Kerr is Inner 
Guard of Burns Lodge, and although now em- 



120 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ployed and residing in Toronto, he is present at 
nearly every regular meeting, although it means 
travelling 250 miles or more to do so. I also desire 
to record the zeal for the Craft of V.W. Bro. D. 
MacBride. This beloved brother is a most patient 
sufferer from a very distressing form of arthritis, 
and although unable to leave his wheel chair he 
was present at the meeting of his lodge. His 
patience and fortitude is an example worthy of 
being brought to the attention of the brethren. 

I visited Hanover Lodge No. 432, on May 4th. 
The opening and closing in the three degrees was 
very satisfactorily performed by the W.M. This 
lodge is in fine condition and a splendid fellowship 
exists among its members. The influence of R.W. 
Bro. John Mills, my worthy predecessor, as well as 
that of R.W. Bro." Armstrong, V.W. Bro. Magee 
and others is very apparent in Hanover Lodge, 
and Bro. Magee is an ideal secretary. 

On May 11th I visited Moravian Lodge No. 
431, Cargill. The work of opening and closing in 
the three degrees was very satisfactorily done by 
the W.M., Bro. Elphick. Moravian Lodge is 
carrying on its work under a distinct handicap on 
account of small membership and heavy carrying 
charges on their building. They, however, report 
an improved financial position over last year and 
are quite optimistic as to the future. The officers 
of the lodge are capable and enthusiastic, and 
W. Bro. Hunstein is a very efficient secretary. 

Harriston Lodge No. 262 was visited on May 
14th. The work of opening and closing in the 
three degrees was satisfactorily performed by W. 
Bro. Thomson, the W.M., and the books and 
records of the lodge are in the safe and efficient 
hands of R.W. Bro. Fawcett. Arrears of dues is a 
matter which should receive the serious consider- 
ation of the brethren of this lodge. 

My last official visit was made on May 17th, 
when I was received bv the brethren of mv own 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 121 

lodge, Port Elgin No. 429. It was indeed an 
honor and a privilege to have thus been received 
by the brethren of my own lodge, as the represen- 
tative of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master. 
W. Bro. A. Miller opened and closed the lodge in 
his usual efficient manner. The books and records 
are kept in splendid shape by W. Bro. Koebke. 
I should here desire to record my deep apprecia- 
tion of the banquet given by the brethren of Port 
Elgin Lodge in my honour at the Arlington Hotel, 
when 137 brethren sat down to a most satisfying 
repast. Practically every lodge in Bruce District 
was represented, besides several lodges outside this 
district. It was particularly pleasing to me to have 
17 members of Doric Lodge, Parkhill, with us on 
this occasion, and I remember with gratitude the 
honour they conferred upon me some years ago in 
electing me their Worshipful Master. 

In conclusion may I again express my deep 
appreciation of the honour which the brethren of 
Bruce District conferred upon me in electing me to 
this high office. It has been a year which has 
brought to me a larger Masonic vision, a year of 
service which I have enjoyed to the full, and it is 
my sincere trust that during my term of office I 
have been able to contribute in at least some little 
manner to the advancement of Masonry in this 
District. 

Fraternally submitted, 

H. C. CAMPBELL, 

D.D.G.M. Bruce District. 



122 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

CHATHAM DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A. F. & 
A. M. of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: — 

In submitting my report of the condition of 
Masonry in Chatham District, I would first thank 
the brethren for the great honor they conferred 
on me, in electing me their District Deputy Grand 
Master. I will always consider this an outstanding 
year in my life and I cannot adequately express my 
appreciation. Thanks to the thorough co-operation 
of the brethren my year in office has been very 
enjoyable. I have been received most kindly by 
every lodge in the district, and I will always have 
fond memories to cherish. 

My first official duty was to appoint W. Bro. 
W. T. Wilkins, as District Secretary. Owing to his 
training as a bank manager, I left the examination 
of accounts and records to him and I know that 
more than one lodge in this district has its books 
in a more satisfactory condition, owing to the 
kindly recommendations of Worshipful Brother 
Wilkins. He has accompanied me on all my 
official visits, taken an exceedingly keen interest 
in all district matters and has been of great assist- 
ance at all times. 

I appointed R.W. Bro. J. A. McCallum, of 
Wellington Lodge, Chatham; and R.W. Bro. 
E. V. Bingham, Howard Lodge, Ridgetown, as 
supervisors of education and I am deeply indebted 
to these brethren for their efforts. I am sorry that 
the different educational lodge committees, did not 
more often given them an opportunity to work. 

I sent a copy of my official visits to every 
Past Grand Lodge Officer in the district, one to 
each master and each secretary, and one to be 
placed in the ante-room of each lodge. I found 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 193-t 123 

this to be a real help to myself and was perhaps' 
partly the reason, that there was such splendid 
attendance at every official inspection, there being 
not less than eighty persent, except on two occasions 
when the weather and road conditions were terrible. 

Accompanied on every occasion, by brethren 
from my mother lodge and the surrounding lodges, 
I officially visited the fourteen lodges, which make 
up Chatham district. In each of them the degree 
was of a very high order and I wish to congratu- 
late every lodge in Chatham district, on the 
efficient and impressive way in which they do their 
work. 

I would like to briefly mention two of my 
official visits. That to Victory Lodge, Chatham, 
where it was also their ladie's night. During the 
meeting every Mason but two who were assisting 
the ladies while they played bridge, was in the 
lodge room. After the meeting, during a lull in 
the dancing, my wife was graciously presented with 
a beautiful silver rose bowl, by the Master, W. Bro. 
Wm. Scurr, on behalf of Victory Lodge. 

The other visit was to my mother lodge, 
Century No. 457. The lodge room was so filled 
with brethren from Chatham and Windsor Dis- 
tricts, that it would have been impossible to do any 
degree work. A unique feature was my introduc- 
tion by R.W. Bro. Ed. Worth, the District Deputy 
Grand Master, who recommended the dispensation 
to Century Lodge in 1901, and W. Bro. W. T. 
Robertson, the first Master of the lodge. This was 
considered particularly fitting, owing to the fact 
that I am the first member of Century Lodge to 
hold this important office. 

Feeling that during these days of rapid transit, 
a district should not live in itself alone, I tried to 
visit the neighboring districts at every opportunity 
I, therefore, visited Windsor District five times, 
St. Thomas District twice, and Sarnia District once. 
These visits were made mostly during Inspections 



124 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

of their District Deputy Grand Masters and I feel 
that they were very useful in extending fraternal 
feelings and Masonic friendships. 

Each lodge in the district holds a church 
service sometime during the year. I have attended 
seven divine services in this district, during my 
term, and I have found a splendid attendance, not 
only by the members of the particular lodge but 
also by the members of the surrounding lodges. I 
attribute this partly to the exhortation of our 
Immediate Past Grand Master, on "Sabbath 
Observance" at the last regular Communication of 
Grand Lodge. 

On February 11, 1934, there passed away at his 
home in Florence, a well known and respected 
Mason, in the person of V.W. Bro. James Beatty. 
He was laid to rest on February 13, under Masonic 
auspices, with the Masonic services taken by Past 
and Present Grand Lodge officers. In spite of the 
inclement weather the funeral was largely attended 
by Masons throughout the Chatham District. 

Besides my official, I made twenty fraternal 
visits throughout the District, bringing the total of 
my attendance at Masonic functions in this and 
other districts to fifty-nine. 

On April 18, 1934, by command of the Most 
Worshipful, the Grand Master, I dedicated the new 
Masonic Hall at Bothwell. Every lodge in the 
district, except one, was represented in the official 
line up, mostly past Grand Lodge officers, and I 
was greatly assisted by Y.W. Bro. Attig, of the 
Grand Secretary's office, R.W. Bro. Steadman, 
District Deputy Grand Master of Sarnia District, 
and R.W. Bro. C. D. Sucee Past Grand Registrar. 
The Dedication bgan at 2.30 p.m. and was suc- 
cessfully concluded at four o'clock. The Acting 
Grand Director of Ceremonies was R.W. Bro. C. E. 
Clements of Chatham and I cannot too strongly 
voice my appreciation of the wonderful manner, 
in which he kept everyone working smoothly during 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 125 

the entire ceremony. This is the third Dedication 
that Star of the East Lodge has had in the last 
fourteen years. It has been their misfortune to 
have had two fires within that time and the enter- 
prise of the brethren in buying the Hall and furn- 
ishing it so beautifully should be highly com- 
mended. 

On November 23, 1933, there occurred in 
Chatham, the outstanding event during my term of 
office, the formal reception of the Most Worshipful, 
the Grand Master, Frank A. Copus. At 6.00 p.m. 
a banquet was held in the Wm. Pitt Hotel. Each 
lodge had been asked to send their four ruling 
officers to this banquet, viz. : Master, Wardens and 
Secretary, and it is a source of deep pleasure and 
satisfaction to me, that every lodge sent its full 
quota. There was also present Past District Deputy 
Grand Masters of Chatham District, Windsor 
District, R.W. Pro. Rev. Canon Perkins, Past 
Grand Chaplain, R.W. Bro. Sucee, Past Grand 
Registrar, and V.W. Bro. Keats, Grand Steward. 

At this banquet the Grand Master gave a dis- 
tinctly Masonic talk, in which he pointed out how 
some difficulties, that often occur in our lodges, 
may be surmounted. 

At 8.30 p.m. those at the banquet repaired to 
the Masonic Temple, where some 400 Masons were 
gathered to honor the Grand Master, who gracious- 
ly gave every Mason present an opportunity to 
personally greet him. In his address the Grand 
Master made a stirring appeal to every member 
present to turn away from the idea that the ma- 
terial things of life are the most worth while and 
to get back to the realization of the true values of 
life. It was one of the most impressive addresses 
ever delivered to a Masonic audience, in this 
district and I feel sure that it inspired those who 
heard it with an enthusiasm to apply the principles 
set forth, in his every day life. 

In my Masonic Educational work, I am greatly 
indebted to the Past Masters' Association. During 



126 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the year they held six meetings, throughout the 
district, four of them Educational. At one of these 
meetings, we had the pleasure of hearing an address 
by R.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, Chairman of the 
Grand Lodge Educational Committee, on the 
"Beginning of Masonry," which was very much 
appreciated. He cleared up many difficulties that 
had confronted the lodge committees. 

The executive of the Association appointed 
R.W. Bro. Boyes to take charge of their Educa- 
tional work, which he has done very thoroughly, 
not only at the Association meetings, but going to 
many of the lodges and with the assistance of 
several members, giving talks on the First Degree 
as outlined by the committee on Masonic Educa- 
tion. 

On May 17, Wellington Chapter, Royal Arch 
Masons, were hosts to the Blue Lodges of the 
District. During the evening an address on the 
"Progress of Masonry" was given by R. Ex. Comp. 
Read of Windsor. I thank Ex. Comp. Waghorne, 
his officers and companions for their splendid 
contribution to our Educational efforts. 

All the lodges, except two, held one, several 
held two, and a few three Educational meetings. 
I am sorry to report a very unsatisfactory attend- 
ance at these meetings. I feel that the lodge com- 
mittees, though they no doubt tried to discharge 
their duties faithfully, have not been the success, 
they were expected to be. I appreciate it very 
much and thank those who assisted me in the 
Educational Program. 

I am glad that most of the lodges have at last 
broken away from meeting by the full of the moon. 
The meetings of the different lodges are well dis- 
tributed throughout the month, only two in the 
entire district, meeting on the same night. 

I made each official visit on a regular night of 
the lodge, believing that the business part of the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 127 

meeting would more clearly demonstrate the Mast- 
ers ability and the interest and enthusiasm of the 
members. During these days of economic stress 
the position of Master has been one of grave re- 
sponsibility but I feel the Masters of this district 
are meeting their problems bravely and diplo- 
matically. 

Each lodge is sustaining serious losses through 
that old problem, non-payment of dues, and I can- 
not think the present economic situation is alto- 
gether to blame. I have suggested to several 
Masters, that a representative committee be ap- 
pointed for the entire term, so that they would 
have plenty of time to investigate the circum- 
stances of every brother in arrears. A delinquent 
brother's financial position should be the com- 
mittees first consideration. There is a possibility 
that we should give him all the comfort that our 
membership affords. On the other hand, examina- 
tion may prove that we have admitted men who 
are not constituted, morally or mentally to appre- 
ciate Masonry. These casual and indifferent Ma- 
sons are adding no strength to our Order and we 
should not feel sorry when their names are stroked 
off. This serious problem concerns us all and I do 
not believe it is going to be solved until we feel 
that numbers are only incidental to the welfare 
of our Great Fraternity. 

In concluding my report, I wish again to ex- 
press my sincere thanks to the Past Masters, 
Officers, and brethren for their kind consideration 
and loyal support, during my term as representa- 
tive of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, and 
when that office, you so kindly bestowed upon me, 
passes to another, may he have the same measure 
of harmony and brotherly love, that has made my 
duties pleasant and profitable. 

Fraternally and respectfully submitted, 
L. E. CREWE,

12S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

EASTERN DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honour to submit for your consider- 
ation my report upon the condition of Masonry in 
Eastern District, and I hasten to take this oppor- 
tunity to again express my sincere thanks and 
appreciation to the lodges of this district for the 
honor bestowed upon me and my Mother Lodge, 
Alexandria, in electing me to represent the Most 
Worshipful the Grand Master as D.D.G.M. 

My first official act was to appoint W. Bro. 
R. H. Cowan of Alexandria Lodge, as District 
Secretary and W. Bro. Rev. D. M. Macleod, as 
District Chaplain. I am deeply indebted to W. 
Bro. Cowan especially, for his assistance and 
loyalty to me as well as for his efficient services 
to the district. His comradeship was always a 
source of delight. His genial disposition and his 
thorough knowledge of his duties made him an ideal 
secretary and lightened my task to a great extent. 
I am also very grateful to my predecessors, who 
by their advice and moral support were of great 
assistance to me in the discharge of my duties. 

To inaugurate my term of office, the four 
Masonic lodges of this historic County of Glen- 
garry, Lancaster, Martintown, Maxville and Alex- 
andria, united in a divine service held in the 
United Church at Alexandria. It was the largest 
gathering of Masons ever held in this town. The 
sermon was delivered by Most Worshipful Bro. 
Rev. Dr. Malcolm A. Campbell, Grand Master of 
the Grand Lodge of Quebec, and Pastor of the 
First Presbyterian Church, Montreal. We deeply 
appreciate the sacrifice he made in coming to this 
district and for his beautiful and inspiring message. 



TOROXTO, ONTARIO, 1934 129 

For a number of years it has been the custom 
in Eastern District to have the official visits occur 
during the early months of the year. As most of 
the lodges hold their installation on the festival 
of St. John the Evangelist, the consequence is that 
these lodges are invariably visited shortly after the 
new officers have assumed office. After consulta- 
tion with some of my predecessors, I decided that 
this condition was unsatisfactory and I visited 
about one half of these lodges during the fall 
months, and I would recommend to my successor 
that he should complete the reversal of the re- 
maining lodges next fall. The officers of each 
lodge would then receive the official visit at the 
completion of their term of office, and I feel con- 
fident that this will prove more satisfactory both to 
the individual lodges and to the D.D.G.M. 

At the request of Grand Lodge the question of 
Masonic Education was introduced to the lodges 
of Eastern District and, acting upon the advice of a 
number of my predecessors, instead of calling a 
joint meeting of a number of the lodges, I made it 
the chief subject of each of my official visits, and 
endeavoured in my humble way to spread the gos- 
pel of Masonic Education, and I am pleased to 
report that the lodges have become much inter- 
ested in this worthy and commendable movement, 
which is bound to have a beneficial effect on Ma- 
onry in this district. 

The list of my official visits and my comments 
on the same, are as follows: 

Hawkesbury, No. 450. — At the invitation of 
the W.M., my first official visit was made to this 
lodge on September 28. As I had been a frequent 
visitor to this lodge in the past and am well 
acquainted with many of its members, the recep- 
tion accorded me was very wonderful indeed. 
W. Bro. Cratchley, W.M., and his capable staff of 
officers exemplified the first degree in a very 
creditable manner. W. Bro. G. A. Cass is an ideal 
secretary and is a pillar of strength to Hawkesbury 
Lodge. 



130 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Henderson No. 383, Winchester. — In company 
with W. Bro. J. T. Smith, B.A., a native of Win- 
chester, I visited this lodge on October 13th. 
The lodge was opened and closed in the several 
degrees by W. Bro. John Fader in an excellent 
manner. 

Wales No. 458, Wales. — This lodge was visited 
on October 30th and proved to be a very enjoyable 
occasion. The second degree was exemplified and 
the candidate who proved himself a perfect candi- 
date, was passed by his father in an excellent man- 
ner. W. Bro. Easter, W.M., is to be congratulated 
for the good work Masonry is doing in such a small 
community. 

Lancaster No. 207, Lancaster. — It is always a 
pleasure to visit this lodge, our nearest neighbour, 
and to have the privilege of inspecting it in the 
name of the Grand Master was a great honour 
indeed. I had the privilege of installing the 
officers of this lodge at a joint installation with 
Alexandria Lodge last June. The lodge was 
opened and closed in the several degrees in a satis- 
factory manner and the proceedings were brought 
to a close with a tasteful banquet. This lodge 
under W. Bro. Jas. McArthur is in capable hands. 

Excelsior No. 142, Morrisburg. — In company with 
W. Bro. R. H. Cowan, District Secretary, I visited 
this lodge on November 3rd. There being no 
candidate, the lodge was opened in the third degree 
by W. Bro. Dr. Louden and his officers very well 
indeed. R.W. Bro. Dr. W. C. Davy, secretary is 
a pillar of strength to this lodge. 

Cardinal No. 491, Cardinal. — This lodge is 
situated in the extreme west end of the district 
and it involved my longest journey. The night 
was bitterly cold but the warmth of the reception 
tendered me more than compensated me for the 
difficulties of the trip. The third degree was dem- 
onstrated in a very efficient and snappy manner by 
W. Bro. T. E. Amell, assisted by a number of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 131 

P.M's. This lodge is thriving and is most fortun- 
ate in having such an outstanding Mason as R.W. 
Bro. W. T. Kingston as secretary. Since visiting 
this lodge on November 10th they have observed 
the 25th anniversary of the formation of their 
lodge in a very fitting manner and it was a source 
of deep regret that I was unable to be present on 
that occasion. 

Farran's Point No. 256, Aultsville. — November 
29th proved to be one of the most treacherous 
nights of the year and my visit to this lodge was a 
very trying one. Starting the trip by motor, I was 
forced to take the train owing to the icy condition 
of the roads. The attendance was small but the 
third degree was exemplified in a fitting manner. 

Cornwall, No. 125, Cornwall. — By special 
invitation I visited this lodge on the festival of 
St. John the Evangelist, the occasion being the 
annual installation and investitutre of officers. 
I was introduced by R.W. Bro. J. C. Macfarlane, 
who officiated at the installation ceremony. A 
shadow of gloom hung over this lodge owing to the 
serious illness of W. Bro. F. W. Snelgrove, W.M., 
who has since passed to the Grand Lodge above, 
W. Bro. Neil Moore, I. P.M. has been carrying on 
in his absence and to him Cornwall lodge owes a 
great deal. A feature of this visit was a presenta- 
tion to V.W. Bro. Dr. C. J. Hamilton in token of 
his 50 years membership in this lodge. The sec- 
retary Bro. A. W. Gammon, is to be congratulated 
upon the able manner in which he keeps his books 
and discharges the duties of his office. In spite 
of the 30 below zero weather, there was a large 
attendance of members. This lodge is probably 
the largest and most prosperous in Eastern District. 

Friendly Brothers No. 143, Iroquois. — This 
lodge was visited on April 25th and a fair attend- 
ance of members were present. Their very efficient 
secretary, R.W. Bro. Herman Hamilton, assisted by 
R.W. Bro. John Harkness introduced me to the 



132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

lodge. The triird degree was exemplified upon au 
excellent candidate by W. Bro. Hess in a splendid 
manner. 

Avonmore No. 452, Avonmore. — The first of 
the three special meetings that I called during the 
year took place on May 8th and was the occasion 
on mv official visit to this lodge. I was introduced 
by R.W. Bro. D. A. McNaughton, M.P.P., and the 
second degree was exemplified. I encountered 
more Masonic enthusiasm in this lodge than I did 
at any of my visits. W. Bro. Victor Johnson, W. 
M., is a very capable Master. 

Martintown No. 596, Martintown. — It was a 
particular pleasure to visit this lodge owing to the 
fact that their W.M., W. W. W. Dean, is at 
present living in Alexandria and is my nearest 
neighbor. We journeyed to the meeting together 
and I witnessed him demonstrate the first degree. 
A splendid spirit of hospitality exists in this lodge. 
W. Bro. D. A. Ross is an efficient secretary and a 
staunch Mason. 

Maxville No. 418, Maxville.— May the 11th 
was the date of my visit to this lodge, another of 
our closest neighbors and one in which one is sure 
to receive the Highland welcome, for which Glen- 
garry is famous. The lodge was opened and closed 
in the several degrees by W. Bro. Cameron. 

Chesterville No. 320, Chesterville.— My visit 
to this lodge on May 14th accompanied by W. 
Bro. R. H. Cowan, was a memorable one inasmuch 
as it was the largest and most enthusiastic meeting 
that I had the privilege of attending. Nineteen 
lodges were represented from all over Eastern 
Ontario. I inspected one of the finest and best 
equipped lodge rooms in the district. W. Bro. 
Rov Fetterly and his officers exemplified the first 
degree in a fine manner. The work of the Junior 
deacon was especially good. This lodge has already 
embarked on a Masonic education campaign. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 133 

Finch No. 557, Finch. — This proved to be an- 
other of the enthusiastic receptions tendered me on 
the occasion of my visit on May 17th. I was 
present at the first meeting held by this lodge some 
years ago and I was agreeably surprised at the 
marked improvements they have made in the ap- 
pearance of their rooms. W. Bro. Brownlee, W.M. ; , 
is an able Master and W. Bro. Arthur McMillan 
keeps a beautiful set of books. 

St. Johns No. 212, Vankleek Hill.— As I was 
born and spent the first 20 years of my life at this 
place, my visit to this lodge was naturally of special 
interest to me. Owing to its proximity to Alex- 
andria a large number of members of my lodge 
accompanied me. No work was attempted and a 
general discussion of masonic subjects took place. 
This is the oldest lodge in Eastern District and is 
fortunate in having an excellent secretary in the 
person of W. Bro. W. R. Hall. 

Williamsburg No. 480, Williamsburg. — This 
visit took place on May 24th. There was no de- 
gree work, but the lodge being strictly a rural one, 
a very pleasant evening was spent with its mem- 
bers. A number of the patients at the famous 
Dr. Locke Clinic, who is a member of this lodge, 
were present and added to the enjoyment of the 
evening. 

Plantagenet No. 186, Riceville. — This lodge 
was visited on May 28th. The Master of this 
lodge, Dr. E. L. Young, is also an old classmate 
at Varsity and although residing in Ottawa at 
present, he has faithfully and zealously performed 
the duties of his office. The lodge was opened in 
the second degree and the lectures in the first 
and second degrees were delivered by the Wardens 
in a splendid manner. 

Alexandria No. 439, Alexandria. — My official 
visit to my Mother Lodge was reserved for the 
last, June 6th, and I feel deeply grateful to the 
members of my lodge as well as the many visitors 



134 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

from other lodges who were present, for the won- 
derful reception which was tendered me on that 
occasion. Especially do I appreciate the action of 
R.W. Bro. A. J. Anderson, M.P., Deputy Grand 
Master, who graced the occasion with his presence. 
It also marked the occasion of the first inter- 
national exchange of visits, made possible by the 
opening of the new vehicular traffic bridge at 
Cornwall. The W.M., of Malone, N.Y. lodge, 
an old friend, accompanied by a number of 
brethren were present. A number of the brethren 
from Ottawa were present. 

The Master of our lodge W. Bro. Rev. D. M. 
Macleod, who is also my pastor, has discharged the 
duties of his office very satisfactorily indeed. W. 
Bro. R. H. Cowan is also a pillar of strength in 
this lodge. 

At the conclusion of the lodge ceremonies we 
had the pleasure of hearing a wonderful address 
on Masonry, from R.W. jBro. A. J. Anderson, 
D.G.M. As an added tribute to the Scottish 
people who inhabit this county he referred to some 
of Scotland's celebrated characters. The Masons 
of Eastern District will long remember the visit 
of the Deputy Grand Master. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the lodges of 
Eastern District for the wonderful spirit of hos- 
pitality which has been displayed to me in the 
midst of the trying and depressing conditions under 
which we are now living. I bespeak for my suc- 
cessor the same kind and courteous treatment which 
was extended to me. 

Fraternally submitted, 

H. L. CHENEY, 
D. D.G.M. Eastern District 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 135 

FRONTENAC DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

To me it is a great honor to have the privilege 
of reporting on the condition of Masonry in Front- 
enac District as the personal representative of the 
Most Worshipful the Grand Master for that 
district. 

Before doing so, however, I want to express to 
the brethren of the distirct my sincere appreciation 
and thanks for the honor conferred not only on 
me, but also on Royal Edward Lodge of which I 
am a charter member, in electing me to this high 
office. 

I also want to express my sincere thanks to 
the brethren of that district for the encouragement 
given and the enthusiastic reception which was 
accorded me wherever I went, particularly on the 
occasion of my official visits. 

I am indebted to R.W. Bro. W. M. Campbell, 
R.W. Bro. J. A. McRae, also W. Bro. A. E. Day, 
W. Bro. Frank Kinnear, and Bro. F. P. Smith, 
for accompanying me on so many of my official 
visits. 

I particularlv appreciate the kindness of R.W. 
Bro. J. O. Herity and R.W. Bro. Barlow of Belle- 
ville also R.W. Bros. Christy Forbes and Hicks of 
Perth, who though not members of Frontenac 
District, were good enough to add lustre to more 
than one of my official visits, by their presence; 
also R.W. Bro." Fred Reynolds D.D.G.M. of St. 
Lawrence District, who not only honored Royal 
Edward Lodge with his presence, on the occasion 
of my official visit to my own lodge, but favored 
the brethren with a most appreciated address, 
taking as his subject "Masonry Past, Present and 
Future." 



130 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

My first official duty was to appoint W. Bro. 
Frank Kinnear, as District Secretary, a position he 
filled with credit to himself and the district. While 
he was unable to join with me on all my visits he 
accompanied me on most of them and was indeed 
a great source of strength to me. 

Masonry is taken seriously in Frontenac Dis- 
trict and is certainly making a large contribution 
towards the happiness and well being of the com- 
munity. 

Of the eighteen lodges in the district, fourteen 
own their own buildings, all of which are well 
appointed with the exception of provision for ven- 
tilation in some of them. I drew this to the atten- 
tion of the brethren in each case and I am con- 
fident some improvement will be made. Good 
ventilation is certainly most important, particularly 
on the occasion of the visit of the representative of 
the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, when such 
large numbers gather in most of the lodges. In 
many cases the meeting had to be curtailed or the 
work eliminated with the result that an oppor- 
tunity is not afforded the lodge to make the most 
of the visit. 

With exception the lodges are fairly well pro- 
tected with fire insurance, both on their regalia and 
property. 

The secretaries on the whole are doing good 
work, particularly in collecting dues in these trying 
times. The importance of a good secretary cannot 
be too much stressed as he may make or mar a 
lodge. The Masters come and go but the secre- 
tary like Tennyson's brook "Go on forever". 

I would like to see better attendance, particu- 
larly in the city lodges. The rural lodges do better 
in this regard than their sister city lodges. Right 
here I would like to pay tribute to the brethren of 
the rural lodges for the splendid work being carried 
on under present circumstances. Many lodges have 



TORONTO, ONTARIO.. 1934 137 

not had a candidate for one, two, and in one case, 
four years, and yet the brethren carry on with 
wonderful zeal and enthusiasm. In this connection 
I feel that the course of Masonic Education now 
undertaken will do much for Masonry. 

Immediately after my election I wrote all the 
lodges asking the Master to nominate a committee 
on Masonic Education, and I am happy to report 
that such a committee has been appointed in every 
lodge in the district. In many lodges such com- 
mittees have been quite active. It is a great 
source of satisfaction to me to receive the Sum- 
mons from lodge after lodge stating that brother 
so and so will give an address on some phase of 
this work. 

The one universal weakness I found throughout 
the district was lack of knowledge of the Constitu- 
tion and rulings of Grand Masters on the part of 
the Masters, and in some cases the secretaries. 
This should not be. I also found that very few of 
the lodges observed that portion of the Constitution 
requiring that portion of the Grand Lodge Reports, 
particularly the Grand Master's address, be read 
in open lodge. I feel that in most lodges no one 
other than the Secretary and Worshipful Master, 
ever sees the report, much less has an opportunity 
to either read it himself or hear portions of it read. 
This should not be. The Grand Master's Address 
in particular represents a tremendous amount of 
work and thought which should be passed on to the 
brethren. I would strongly recommend inter- 
lodge visits as a means of not only keeping up 
interest, but also as an opportunity for wider 
fellowship., particularly between the city and 
country lodges. Nothing quite so much puts the 
officers of a lodge on their mettle as being called 
upon to exchange fraternal visits with a city sister 
lodge and to exemplify some part of the work. 

My first official visit was to Simpson Lodge 
No. 157, Newboro, Sept. 26th. Knowing that it 
was in this lodge that M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel 



138 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

first saw the light of Masonry, I anticipated good 
work being done and in this was not disappointed. 
This was the first meeting of the lodge after the 
holiday period, consequently, the officers were some- 
what apologetic with regard to their work. While 
no degree was exemplified, the officers did open and 
close the lodge in the several degrees which satis- 
fied me that efficient work would be done when a 
candidate presented himself. 

An enthusiastic welcome was extended to me 
on my official visit to Frontenac Lodge No. 621 
Sharbot Lake on Friday evening, Sept. 29th. In 
addition to a splendid turnout of their own mem- 
bers many visitors were present. 

The officers of Frontenac Lodge exemplified 
the Fellowcraft degree, in a most efficient manner. 
From the work done I am satisfied that this lodge 
is in an excellent condition. The attendance dur- 
ing the past year has been particularly good and 
there is not one member over two years in arrears 
in his dues. 

I was quite satisfied on the occasion of my 
official visit to Westport Lodge Xo. 441, on Friday 
evening, October 6th, that the work was in safe 
hands regardless of the fact that only one candidate 
had been initiated during the past year. W. Bro. 
J. M. Cameron and his officers, exemplified the 
work of the First degree in a most efficient manner. 

I feel that some exchange visits would be a 
splendid thing for this lodge and in discussing the 
matter with the W. Master, he assured me that 
this would be done. 

At the banquet which followed several short 
addresses were given by different members all of 
whom strongly approved of taking some definite 
action regarding Masonic Education. 

For years I had heard of the wonderful recep- 
tion given the representative of the Most Wor- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 139 

ship the Grand Master, on the occasion of his 
official visit to Prince Arthur Lodge No. 228, 
Odessa, but had no idea it would equal that ex- 
tended to me on the occasion of my official visit 
on October 16th. 

Prince Arthur Lodge owns its own building, 
the lodge room being upstairs while the banquet 
hall is on the ground floor. Knowing that no work 
was on I previously requested the W. Master to 
exemplify the First degree, but the crowd was so 
large that this was not possible. I, therefore, had 
the officers open and close the lodge in the several 
degrees which satisfied me that W. Bro. Fred 
Mason and his officers were doing good work. 

One refreshing thing about this meeting was 
the deluge of questions asked of the D.D.G.M. 
which gave evidence of the keen interest taken in 
the work by the members. 

Albion Lodge No. 109, Harrowsmith, has al- 
ways enjoyed a reputation for good work and 
hospitality. I officially visited this lodge Friday 
evening, October 27th, and can certainly justify 
this reputation. W. Bro. W. L. Nicholls and his 
officers exemplified the First degree in a most 
creditable manner. The officers particularly im- 
pressed me with the manner in which they seized 
the significance of the work, and in turn displayed 
a faculty of passing on this information to the 
candidate in an impressive manner. 

This lodge seems to have solved two of the 
difficult problems, namely, attendance and collec- 
tion of dues. The average attendance for the past 
year was 40% of the membership, while there is no 
member over two years in arrears in dues, which is 
a splendid tribute to the efficiency of the secretary. 

I paid my official visit to Leeds Lodge No. 
201, Gananoque, on Tuesday evening, October 31st, 
when W.M. Thos. Shirrell and his officers conferred 
the First degree. This was the first opportunity I 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

had to see this degree conferred on a real candi- 
date, one of the brethren having substituted in the 
previous lodges, so that I appreciated the exempli- 
fication of this work by the officers very much. 

I had occasion on my visit to this lodge to 
draw attention of the brethren to a custom which 
somehow had crept into the lodge, namely, that of 
taking up a collection during the time the Junior 
Warden's lecture was being given. On inquiry I 
iound that the object was to secure money for 
flowers, cigars, etc., for sick brethren, but I strongly 
recommended that while the object was praise- 
worthy, the time of taking it up was very in- 
opportune as it disturbed the lodge during the 
giving of this beautiful lecture. 

It has been said "That the Light that shines 
farthest shines brightest nearest home.'' I felt this 
saying was true when I visited Prince of Wales 
Lodge No. 146, Newburgh, on the evening of 
November 1st, and witnessed the tower of strength 
R.W. Bro. Aylsworth was to this lodge. Bro. 
Aylsworth had been Master in this lodge 45 years 
ago, and still maintains his keen interest in its 
welfare. 

As there was no regular work on that evening 
I asked the W. Master and his officers to exemplify 
the First degree, using one of the brethren as 
candidate. The work was done in a most credit- 
able manner. 

Bro. F. P. vSmith, Inspector of Public Schools, 
Kingston, gave a most illuminating address on 
"Masonry Before the Formation of Grand Lodge." 

On the occasion of my official visit to Victoria 
Lodge No. 299, Centreville, on Friday evening, 
November 2nd, W. Bro. Fred R. Brown and his 
officers exemplified the Second degree, The work 
was put on with snap and sincerity which I am 
confident would impress any candidate. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 141 

It was my privilege on this occasion to present 
on behalf of the officers and members of the lodge, 
to the immediate Past Master, with the Past 
Master's Jewel. R.W. Bro. H. A. Carscallen, 
secretary, is indeed great asset to this lodge. 

M.W. Bro. Herrington thrilled the hearts of those 
present by an account of his visit to the Mother 
Lodge in England on the occasion of the recent 
dedication of the new temple. 

I made my first official visit in the city of 
Kingston at Queens Lodge No. 578, on Wednesday 
evening, February 14th, 1934. 

This lodge, as the name would imply, is largely 
made up, if not entirely, by university men, both 
professors and students. To me this lodge can be a 
great asset or a great liability to Masonry; an 
asset in that the candidates are almost entirely 
composed of university students who in the course 
of life should occupy positions of prominence and 
importance wherever they may wander, conse- 
quently, if the candidate is properly instructed and 
instilled with the beauty and charm of Masonrv 
he may become a great asset and make a large 
contribution to the welfare of the craft. On the 
other hand, if he is not impressed he may feel that 
he knows all about Masonry, that there is nothing 
to it, consequently, looses interest and becomes a 
liability in that those with whom he may associate 
may look on him as a Mason and then decide 
there is nothing to it, otherwise this man would be 
more enthusiastic. I pointed this out to the mem- 
bers in order to impress the officers with the great 
responsibility which was theirs. 

W. Bro. J. D. Herman and his officers assisted 
by several past masters, exemplified the work of the 
First degree in a very satisfactory manner. 

The Past Masters turned out well in this lodge, 
but I felt that for some reason the members did 
not attend as they should. Following the work in 



142 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the lodge, W. Bro. Dr. Austin, gave a most inter- 
esting address. 

Minden Lodge No. 253 accorded me a very 
hearty welcome on the occasion of my official 
visit on Tuesday evening, March 6th. 

This lodge was called for seven-thirty, and 
exactly thirty minutes after seven o'clock, W. Bro. 
T. J. Turner brought down his gavel calling the 
brethren to order. With this evidence of the man- 
ner in which the lodge was conducted, I was not 
surprised to find all the officers perform their 
respective duties with accuracy and precision. 

The First degree was to have been conferred 
but due to unforeseen circumstances the candidate 
was unable to be present. However, the brethren 
rose to the occasion and a most educative and 
instructive evening was enjoyed. Question after 
question was asked which gave ample evidence of 
the fact that the brethren present were doing some 
independent thinking. After fully an hour spent 
in this manner I felt that Minden Lodge was doing 
excellent work. 

Cataraqui Lodge Xo. 92, was officially visited 
on Friday evening, March 9th. The Fellowcraft 
degree was conferred by W. Bro. H. F. Thompson 
and his officers in a most satisfactory manner. 

Cataraqui Lodge is the largest lodge in 
Frontenac district, having upwards of four hundred 
members. It is also the second oldest lodge in 
Kingston. 

Like many other city lodges Cataraqui Lodge 
is suffering from too large an influx of members 
during the prosperous years; members, who never 
were Masons other than in name who are neither 
an asset to the lodge nor a credit to the craft, with 
the result that no matter how efficient and how 
hard the officers work the attendance is shamefully 
small and the support weak. W. Bro. Thompson 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 143 

is an efficient and enthusiastic Master and is sup- 
ported by good officers and a splendid number of 
Past Masters, but is not given the encouragement 
and support from the rank and file to which he is 
entitled. 

The lodge was opened promptly on time; no 
time was lost in putting through the work and 
conferring the degree which was followed by a 
brief talk by myself on "Landmarks", yet we were 
finished by ten thirty. The earliest of any lodge 
visited thus far. 

As would be expected with the lack of interest, 
many members are in arrears in their dues. How- 
ever, in W. Bro. Clark the lodge has an excellent 
secretary who is doing much to improve the 
situation. 

On Friday evening, March 23rd, I had the 
privilege of visiting officially Royal Edward Lodge 
No. 585, of which I am a charter member. \Y. 
Bro. C. C. Wyatt and his officers, assisted by 
several Past Masters, conferred the Fellowcraft 
degree with music in a most excellent manner. 
Being my own lodge, and being particularly anxious 
to see good work done on account of the large 
number of visitors, I would naturally be somewhat 
critical, but was indeed proud of the work put on. 
The Deacons and Stewards were particularly 
efficient in the floor work. The spirit and brotherly 
feeling in Royal Edward is most noticeable by 
visitors and everyone is given a royal welcome and 
made to feel right at home. 

R.W. Bro. Reynolds gave a much appreciated 
address on the subject of "Masonry, Past, Present 
and Future". In all it was one of the happiest 
and most pleasant visits of my whole tenure of 
office. 

I made my official visit at The Ancient St. 
John's Lodge No. 3, Kingston, on Thursday 
evening, April 5th. The Ancient St. John's is the 



144 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

oldest lodge in Frontenac district, and one of the 
oldest in the Province. This year it is one hundred 
and forty years old, yet regardless of this hoary 
age and wonderful history its officers and members 
seem to enjoy perennial youth. Unfortunately, 
W. Bro. H. A. Stewart, W. Master, was unable to 
be present through illness. However, his place was 
ably filled by the immediate Past Master, W. Bro. 
Harry Smithies. 

The First degree was conferred by the W. 
Master, assisted by his officers and several Past 
Masters, in a most impressive manner. The lodge 
is fortunate in having in W. Bro. Cathcart, a 
most efficient secretary who not only performs his 
clerical duties in a most satisfactory manner, but 
also is a good collector of dues, thus keeping his 
lodge in good condition financially. 

I made my official visit to Union Lodge No. 9, 
of Napanee, on Friday evening, April 13th, when a 
most enthusiastic reception was given the represen- 
tative of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master. 

This lodge is not only the second oldest in the 
district, but is also the mother lodge of M.W. Bro. 
H. Herrington, so that I expected to find every- 
thing in first class condition, and was certainly not 
disappointed. 

The popularity of this annual event was 
evidenced by the fact that representatives were 
present in large numbers from Kingston, Belleville, 
and all the surrounding lodges, even as far west 
as Toronto and Brantford. 

W. Bro. H. E- Taylor, W. Master, assisted 
by his officers and several Past Masters, exempli- 
fied the First degree in an excellent manner. 

I was particularly impressed with the report 
given by the Board of General Purposes, showing 
the work being done to assist brethren out of work 
in keeping up their dues. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 145 

The lodge enjoys splendid quarters and is well 
officered, and in first class condition. 

I made my official visit to Rideau Lodge Xo. 
441, on Thursday evening April 26th. As there 
was no regular work on for that evening, W. Bro. 
J. R. Clark, W. Master, and his officers, opened 
and closed the lodge in the respective degrees. 
While the officers were not expecting this as they 
were prepared to exemplify the work of the First 
degree, they demonstrated to my satisfaction that 
they have the work well in hand. The secretarv's 
books were in good condition. The lodge is par- 
ticularly fortunate in having two or three Past 
Masters who are sufficiently interested to insure 
that the land marks of the order are carefullv 
guarded. 

Maple Leaf Lodge No. 119, Bath, was officially 
visited on Monday evening, May 14th. This lodge 
always extends a royal welcome to the representa- 
tive of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, 
and this year was no exception to the rule. 

The lodge room was crowded to capacity. W. 
Bro. Claude Thompson, W. Master, and his 
officers, assisted by several Past Masters, con- 
ferred the Entered Apprentice Degree on Rev. Mr. 
Earle who made an exceptional, good candidate. 
The degree was well put on considering the diffi- 
culties under which the officers had to work due 
to the large crowd. I did, however, feel called 
upon to criticize the manner in which the writing 
test was applied. Personally, I feel that anything 
which has a tendency to embarrass a candidate or 
cause laughter among the brethren has no place 
in Masonry. The lodge is fortunate in its choice of 
secretary in the person of W. Bro. D. F. Ayls- 
worth. 

Lome Lodge No. 404, Tamworth, was official 
visited Friday evening, May 25th. 

I looked forward to this visit with a great deal 
of interest for the reason that my immediate pre- 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

decessor as representative of the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master, R.W. Bro. J. A. Brown, hailed 
from this lodge. 

Lome Lodge was greatly effected by the 
present economic situation in the lack of candidates. 
To my amazement W. Bro. \V. C. Richardson, the 
sitting Master, told me that he was initiated four 
years ago yet he had never witnessed an initiation 
in the lodge during that time. Regardless of this 
handicap the W. Master and his officers opened 
and closed the lodge in the three degrees in a 
manner which satisfied me that the work was in 
good hands, indeed, I could not help but admire the 
heroic manner in which the officers and members 
kept up their enthusiasm under such circumstances. 
The secretary's books and records were well kept. 

My last official visit was to St. Andrews 
Lodge No. 497, Arden on Monday evening, May 
28th. The brethren in the northern portion of the 
district certainly deserve credit for the manner in 
which they join with the host lodge in welcoming 
the representative of the Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master, and this occasion was no exception. 

I was amazed to discover that although the 
By-laws of this lodge stated definitely that the 
regular meetings should be held on Friday on or 
before full moon, the lodge had always met on 
Tuesday, and although the By-laws stated that the 
election of officers should take place on the regular 
meeting preceding the Festival of St. John the 
Evangelist, the lodge had always held its election 
at the regular meeting preceding the Festival of 
St. John the Baptist. It seems increditable that 
a lodge could carry on breaking its By-laws for 
some twenty-five years without someone bringing 
the matter to the attention of the brethren. I gave 
instructions that the By-laws be amended im- 
mediately in order to comply with the dates on 
which the meetings were being held. 

Xo work being on for the evening, W. Bro. 
K. C. Alexander and his officers opened and closed 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1931 147 

the lodge in the three degrees. I was not at all 
satisfied with the manner in which the work was 
done, due not to the inability of the officers but 
rather to lack of interest. The election of officers 
for the ensuing year took place at this meeting and 
I feel that Bro. Thornton, Master elect, will take 
steps to give St. Andrews Lodge much needed 
leadership. Bro. Thornton impressed me with 
being enthusiatic over the work and anxious to 
remedy the difficulties in his lodge. I recom- 
mended inter-visits with some other lodges as being 
most helpful, particularly in this case, and I trust 
that such will be done. 

I could not help but feel that if the members 
of St. Andrews' Lodge entered into the work of the 
lodge with the same enthusiasm and zeal as their 
wives and sweethearts did in connection with the 
banquet, they would have one of the best lodges 
in the district. 

In closing I would like to refer to the great 
encouragement I received on my official visits due 
to the hunger for Masonic knowledge which seemed 
to be manifested everywhere. When discussing 
the work in the lodge room at the close of each 
lodge, I always took occasion to refer to some 
phase of the symbolic work and was delighted with 
the questions which were asked on almost every 
occasion. Following this up at the banquet on each 
occasion, I usually gave a short address dealing 
with some phase of Masonic interest such as 
"Masonry Before 1717", "The Ancient Land 
Marks", "Operative Masonry", and "The Regius 
Manuscript," which I felt would be in keeping 
with the course of study now in vogue, and from 
the many kindly remarks made by the brethren I 
feel confident that much good work is going to be 
done along this line in Frontenac district. 

I would again like to thank the brethren of 
Frontenac district for the great privilege which was 
given me in serving them in the capacity of the 
representative of the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master.

In mountain climbing the higher one ascends 
the greater does his horizon become, likewise, the 
higher one is permitted to ascend in Masonry the 
better one is enabled to appreciate its wonders and 
beauty. When I became Master I felt the wider 
view, but as representative of the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master, this broadened tremendously so 
that I was permitted to see Masonry in an entirely 
different manner. The new friendships, the oppor- 
tunitv for service, the broadening vision unfold- 
ing the wonders of Masonry, enthralls one so that 
the joys of the year I was permitted to serve as 
D.D.G.M. shall never be effaced from my memory. 
I bespeak for my successor even greater joys and 
happiness if such is possible, during his term of 
office. 

Fraternally submitted, 

M. G. JOHNSTON, 
D.D.G.M. Frontenac District.

GEORGIAN DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In submitting my report on the condition of 
Masonry in the Georgian District, I wish to express 
to the brethren of Georgian District, my sincere 
appreciation of the honour conferred on me, and 
on my Mother Lodge, Nitetis, No. 444, in electing 
me as District Deputy Grand Master. 

My first official duty was the appointment of 
W. Bro. H. M. Corbett/as District Secretary, and 
Rev. Bro. Williams, as District Chaplain, and to 
forward a letter to the different lodges, making 
them acquainted with these appointments. 

A letter with a statement of the condition of 
the district funds was sent to the Secretary of 
each lodge, and later in the year a report was sent, 
showing the amounts received from the lodges, and 
forwarded to the District Treasurer, R.W. Bro. 
T. McKnight. 

The success of the work of Masonic Education 
in past years, when instructors were appointed, 
has shown good results, and the enlargement of this 
work this year by the committee of Grand Lodge, 
when each lodge in every district was requested to 
take part, has created a very fine and active in- 
terest. 

I am pleased to report, that every lodge in 
Georgian district, has entered into the work en- 
thusiastically. 

Many distinguished brethren accepted the 
opportunity to give addresses on this subject, and 
many topics were used, that I feel have done much 
to advance Masonic Education. 



150 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I am pleased to report that on every official 
visit I have had a guest speaker on Masonic Edu- 
cation, and I am deeplv indebted to R.W. Bro. 
Keefe, W. Bro. H. M. Corbett, V.W. Bro. Robert- 
son, W. Bro. Dr. Ives, W. Bro. L. E. Gosselin, 
W. Bro. Dr. W. D. Smith, Bro. Rev. C. J. Bailey, 
and the chairman of Masonic Education, R.W. 
Bro. Dunlop, for their support with these ad- 
dresses. 

My first official visit was to Seven Star Lodge, 
No. 285, Alliston, on Oct. 23, 1933. The E.A. 
degree was conferred by W. Bro. Frank McLean 
and the officers in a very creditable manner, Past 
Grand Chaplain, R.W. Bro. Knight, formerly of 
Toronto, assisting. The absence of R.W. Bro. 
Cunningham, a Past District Deputy Grand Mas- 
ter of Georgian District, who has always been a 
great help to Seven Star Lodge, we were sorry to 
learn, was due to severe sickness. W. Bro. Cor- 
bett gave an address on "Early History of Ma- 
sonry in this Province." This lodge is fortunate 
in having such an efficient secretary as W. Bro. 
Crosbie. The books are in excellent shape. The 
funds and dues complete. Masonry is advancing 
steadily in Seven Star Lodge. 

It was a great pleasure to visit with Corin- 
thian Lodge No. 96, Barrie, on Nov. 2, 1934, the 
occasion of the visit of the Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master, at the seventy-fifth anniversary of 
the institution of this lodge. This being Past 
Master's night, R.W. Bro. Alex. Cowan occupied 
the chair in his usual clear and efficient manner. 
The Grand Master, M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus, 
delivered a splendid address on "Our Obligation," 
another notable contribution to Masonic Educa- 
tion, that will be long remembered by the brethren. 
R.W. Bro. Keefe, R.W. Bro. Sprott and the 
D.D.G.M. spoke of the great benefits to Masonry 
from the visit of the Grand Master. Masonry in 
Barrie lodges is very carefully safeguarded by many 
Past Grand Lodge officers and Past Masters, and 
with their fine Temple, truly upholds the traditions 
of the Craft. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 151 

On Thursday, Nov. 9, 1933, the Official visit to 
Georgian Lodge Xo. 248, at Penetanguishene, 
occurred. Not having any degree work, the W.M. 
Bro. Baxter and officers opened the lodge inThree 
Degrees, in a very capable manner. I had the 
pleasure of presenting the immediate Past Master 
with the Past Master Jewel. This lodge is most 
fortunate in having as Secretary, R.W. Bro. Keefe, 
Past District Deputy Grand Master, and the 
chairman of Masonic Education in Georgian Dis- 
trict, who has done much to make Masonry so 
successful in Georgian District, During the early 
autumn the lodge rooms were redecorated and 
presented a bright and attractive appearance. An 
address by W, Bro. Dr. Ives of Stayner with a 
splendid musical program by members of Georgian 
Lodge, concluded a very enjoyable evening. 

On the afternoon of Jan. 24, 1934, at 4.30 
p.m. I visited Victoria Lodge in Victoria Harbour. 
The dedication of their new lodge rooms was per- 
formed by R.W. Bro. Dudley and brethren of 
Caledonian Lodge, Midland, in very impressive 
manner. Following this ceremony, the official visit 
to Victoria Lodge was made. The fine appoint- 
ments of the lodge and the efficient officers under 
W. Bro. Herrington, impresses one, with the splendid 
condition of Masonry here. W. Bro. Corbett gave 
an address on "Early Lodges in Ontario". 

Having arranged for the visit to Spry Lodge, 
Beeton,for Jan. 29, 1934, I looked forward to this 
event with extra interest, as many old friends are 
members. Bro. Dr. W. D. Smith of Nitetis Lodge, 
Creemore, accompanied me, and gave a splendid 
address on the "Antiquity of Masonry," that filled 
our minds with the early builders. This lodge has a 
splendid secretary. The books are in fine shape 
and the funds well in hand. 

On Feb. 2, 1934, I unofficially attended 
Manito Lodge, Collingwood, at their annual "At 
Home." 



152 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The visit to Pythagoras Lodge, No. 237, Mea- 
ford, on Feb. 6, 1934. The Second degree was 
excellently exemplified by W. Master Bro. Dobie 
and the officers, and the candidate's close attention 
reflected credit on the brother who prepared him. 
V.W. Bro. Robertson of Collingwood, the guest 
speaker, gave a fine talk on the "Origin of Ma- 
sonry," which was heartilv appreciated bv all 
present. R.W. Bro. Hammil, P.D.D.G.M. of 
Georgian District some 25 years ago, along with 
many Past Masters is a great assistance to 
Pythagoras Lodge, one of the oldest lodges in the 
Province, and Masonry is well guarded. 

On February 22, 1934, I visited jointly the 
two lodges in Barrie, Kerr and Corinthian, when 
the officers of each lodge took part in exemplifying 
the Second degree in a very impressive manner. 
The chairs were filled with officers of Kerr Lodge 
and work carried forward to obligation, when 
officers of Corinthian Lodge completed the degree. 
These lodges have many outstanding Past Masters, 
who are enthusiastic Masons. The work is made 
particularly impressive at all times. R.W. Bro. 
Cowan, who introduced the D.D.G.M. is one of the 
leaders in Georgian District, R.W. Bro. Keefe gave 
an address on the subject "Over the Hill", which 
left food for thought, both Masonically and other- 
wise. 

Orillia Lodge was visited on March 2, 1934. 
The installation of the new Master, W. Bro. 
Brown, was ably done by R.W. Bro. Kirkpatrick, 
and the Past Masters. This was the second instal- 
lation within the last two months, the Master 
installed on St. John's night having passed to 
Grand Lodge above. This lodge has suffered the 
loss of fifteen brethren within the Masonic year, 
one being R.W. Bro. Tudhope. The way the 
newly installed officers do the floor work, speaks 
well for the interest and instruction by the Past 
Masters. The appointments and lighting finest 
within the District and great credit to Orillia 
Lodge. 



TOROXTO. ONTARIO, 1934 153 

Tottenham Lodge was visited on March 5, 
1934. The weather being very stormy and the 
roads poor. Yet the number of brethren present 
was surprising. Brethren from Alliston, Beeton 
and Penetanguishene in attendance. Rev. Bro. 
C. J. Bailey, of Creemore, gave an interesting 
address on "The Four Ways," which placed before 
the brethren, very clearly our duties as Masons. 
The officers exemplified the Second degree credit- 
ably. The books of the lodge are in the hands of 
R.W. Bro. McKnight, which ensures good work. 
Masonic Education is being given the members and 
Masonry is advancing steadily. 

March 13, 1934, was the occasion of the 
official visit to Manito Lodge No. 90, Collingwood. 
There was a large attendance of brethren, many 
from Stayner, Thornbury, Meaford and Creemore. 
The Second degree was conferred by W.M. Bro. 
Smart and the officers in a manner that reflected 
great credit on the lodge. There are many Past 
Grand Lodge officers and Past Masters, who take a 
keen interest in the work of the lodge. W. Bro. 
Currie and W. Bro. Hughes, Sr., Masons for over 
fifty years, were present and assisted in the work. 
The loyalty of these older brethren helps to make 
Manito the outstanding lodge it is today. Dr. 
W. D. Smith of Creemore gave an instructive 
address on the "Antiquity of Masonry" ; placing 
before them the true Masonic ideals, which brought 
forth warm words of praise from the brethren. 

On March 27, 1934, I visited Beaver Lodge, 
No. 234, Thornbury. The W.M., Bro. French and 
officers conferred the Second degree with accuracy 
and precision that should impress the candidate. 
This lodge has the finest appointments of any of 
the smaller lodges, and great credit is due the 
Secretary, W. Bro. Idle, who has given of his time 
to make and to present to the lodge much of the 
furnishings. This lodge is particularly well blest 
with active Past Masters, R.W. Bro. Pye and W. 
Bro. Mitchell. The former over sixty years a 
member of Beaver lodge, and the latter who though 



154 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

eighty years of age, gave the charge in this degree. 
Masonry is well supported in Beaver lodge. 

On April 2, 1934, I officially visited Caledonian 
Lodge No. 249, Midland, and found the W. Masters 
and officers well in command of the work. The 
A. E. Degree was conferred in splendid manner, 
the charge particularly well given by V.W. Bro. 
King. Owing to a mistake in the notice to the 
brethren, also many other town attractions, the 
attendance was below the average. Bro. Dr. W. 
D. Smith of Creemore, gave a fine talk on "Ancient 
Freemasonry," which called forth many compli- 
mentary remarks. This lodge is making good pro- 
gress financially and Masonically. 

The visit to Coronation Lodge, No. 466, 
Elmvale, occurred on April 20, 1934. There were 
many brethren from the lodges of the district. 
The E.A. degree was conferred in an impressive 
way, the Master and officers showing a fine grasp 
of the degree work, and the Junior Warden gave 
the lecture in a convincing manner. R.W. Bro. 
Keefe gave a fine address on the meaning of Ma- 
sonry to the future of our country, in his usual 
entertaining way. It is a great credit to this 
lodge, their own fine lodge room and furnishings. 
Masonry is progressing well in this lodge. 

On April 24, 1934, the official visit to Minerva 
Lodge No. 304, Stroud, was made. The E.A. 
degree was very impressively conferred by W. 
Master and officers. Many Past Masters took an 
active interest in the work. Keen attention is 
shown by all, and Masonry well guarded in this 
lodge. The District Secretary, W. Bro. Corbett, 
gave an address on "Romance of Masonry in the 
Province of Ontario," that was greatly enjoyed. 
For a purely rural lodge, there is a large member- 
ship. They own their lodge rooms and the books 
of the secretary are well kept and dues well in 
hand. 

Visited Northern Light Lodge No. 266 Stayner, 
May 15, 1934. The W. Master and officers con- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 155 

ferred the E.A. Degree in a very satisfactorily 
manner. W. Bro. L. E. Gosselin spoke in the 
lodge room, of the "History of the Temple at 
Jerusalem," which was both instructive and inter- 
esting. W. Bro. Dean of Corinthian Lodge, Tor- 
onto gave an address on "Friendship". R.W. Bro. 
Bethune, a Mason for fifty years and R.W. Bro. 
Campbell are a tower of strength to Northern 
Light Lodge. 

On May 18, 1934, the official visit to Karnak 
Lodge No. 492, Coldwater, took place. There not 
being any degree work, the Master \Y. Bro. Lang- 
ton and officers opened the lodge in the three de- 
grees, and proved they have the work in each de- 
gree well advanced. The records are well kept and 
great credit is due to the secretary. 

On June 12, 1934, the visit to Manitoba 
Lodge, No. 236, Cookstown, was made. This lodge 
is known for its aggressive work. There are many 
Past Masters and Past Grand Lodge officers, who 
never fail to be present at the regular meetings 
of the lodge, and ready to assist in the degree 
work. On this visit a Past Master, W. Bro. 
Fletcher, conferred the E.A. degree on his son. 
The charge given by Past Master, and the address 
and presentation of Masonic Bible completed a 
splendid degree. W. Bro. Corbett gave an address 
on the "History of Early Lodge Meetings in the 
Province." 

On Friday, June 22, 1934, the final visit for 
the year was made at Nitetis Lodge No. 444, 
Creemore. The lodge opened 4.30 p.m., when the 
reception to the Ruling Masters, Past District 
Deputy Grand Masters and the Grand Lodge 
officers, was carried out with the honours due to 
their respective offices. This being my Mother 
Lodge, and knowing how well the officers conduct 
the work, I did not request an exemplification of 
the degrees, but requested the Junior Warden to 
explain on the floor of the lodge, the lecture on 
the tracing board in the E.A. degree. The very 
efficient manner in which this was done brought 



15C GRAND LODGE OF CANADA AXXALL COMMUNICATION 

forth words of praise from many of the visiting 
brethren. W. Bro. Shepherd presided over the 
work in the lodge in a very capable manner. The 
Secretary Bro. Williams has the books in excellent 
shape and funds in splendid condition. Addresses 
were given by R.W. Bro. Campbell. Bethune, 
J. J. McKnight, Howard Cover, of Georgian Dis- 
trict and R.W. Bro. Walls of Victoria District. 
One of the very pleasant moments of the evening 
was the presentation to R.W. Bro. Alex. Cowan of 
Barrie, of the D.D.G.M's .Regalia of the late R.W. 
Bro. Brown, Past D.D.G.M. of Georgian District 
and a charter member of Nitetis Lodge. I had 
the pleasure of being the District Secretary under 
the late Bro. Brown, twenty-two years ago, and it 
was indeed a great pleasure to present this Regalia 
from Mrs. Brown and her son Jay, to our worthy 
brother. R.W. Bro. Brown and Cowan had been 
partners in law for many years and Bro. Cowan's 
reply showed how keenly he felt on receiving this 
gift. R.W. Bro. Bethune of Stayner introduced the 
guest speaker of the evening, R.W. Bro. Dunlop, 
the chairman of Masonic Education in the Grand 
Lodge . Bro. Bethune having known Bro. Dunlop 
from boyhood, did justice to the opportunity. 
R.W. Bro. Dunlop spoke on the University exten- 
sion work and the benefits to the Craft of Masonic 
Education, and placed before the brethren the 
advantages and benefits of this great work in a 
manner that left a deep impression on the minds of 
all present. 

In this Georgian District, Peace, Harmony and 
Brotherly Love prevail. Masonry has shown ad- 
vancement in an increase of membership, large and 
enthusiastic meetings, a keener interest in Masonic 
Education, and it is with sincere thankfulness and 
appreciation of the splendid support accorded me 
by the brethren, that I close this report of Georgian 
District. 

Yours fraternally, 

J. R. LAWRENCE, 
D.D.G.M. Georgian District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1931 157 

GREY DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: — 

I have the honor and pleasure of submitting 
to you for your consideration my report as D.D.G. 
M. on the condition of Masonry in Grey District 
during the past Masonic year. In so doing I wish 
first to express my thanks to the brethren of the 
district for electing me to the high office of District 
Deputy Grand Master and also my appreciation for 
the many courtesies shown on all my occasions to 
be with them. 

My first official act was to appoint W. Bro. 
John A. Rowland of Durham Lodge No. 306 as 
District Secretary. May I say that one could not 
have a more efficient and capable secretary than I 
have had, and I am indeed indebted to W. Bro. 
Rowland for his co-operation. I also appointed 
Bro. (Rev.) C. O. Pherrill of Hiram Lodge No. 490 
Markdale as District Chaplain. He accompanied 
me on several visits, and I was very pleased to 
have him as District Chaplain. 

My first official visit was to St. George's 
Lodge, Owen Sound, The second degree was ex- 
emplified and the general work was good. 

Dundalk Lodge was visited on evening of Oct. 
2nd. Attendance was excellent and this lodge has 
about the best financial standing in the district, 
and I found their Secretary, W. Bro. Champ, 
to be very efficient in his duties. The work in- 
cluded opening and closing in the three degrees. 

On Oct. 27th I paid my official visit to Prince 
Arthur Lodge, Flesherton. Though this lodge is 
one of the smallest of the district they had an 
almost overflow attendance on this occasion. Thev 
have built a new lodge hall, and too much credit 



158 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

can not be given them in their earnest endeavours. 
Lodge was opened and closed in the three degrees. 
W. Bro. Thurston and his officers proved quite 
efficient. 

Durham Lodge No. 306, my Mother Lodge, 
was the scene of my next visit on Nov. 21st. 
Though the weather was distinctly unfavorable and 
no out-of-town visitors were present, the lodge 
honored me with an almost a hundred per cent, 
attendance of local brethren, which I felt to be 
quite a tribute. I witnessed the initiation cere- 
mony. Durham Lodge upheld their good work of 
the past by the manner of the work that evening. 

Wellington Lodge, Erin, was visited on Nov. 
2nd. I was pleased to meet many new brethren 
on this occasion. Before lodge opened I took time 
to visit a sick brother of the lodge, W. Bro. Over- 
land, a Past Master of many years standing, and 
who was glad to meet the D.D.G.M. Work in- 
cluded opening and closing in the three degrees. 
This lodge is in good financial condition, and much 
credit is due them, and particularly W. Bro. 
Foster, their Secretary, for the establishment of a 
local Benevolent Fund. 

Durham's Mother Lodge, St. Alban's, Mt. 
Forest, was visited on Dec. 1st. They had an 
excellent attendance and opening and closing in the 
degrees was well done. Masonic Education is being 
well looked after in this lodge under the guidance 
of W. Bro. Ivan Chalmers. 

I had the pleasure of visiting North Star 
Lodge, Owen Sound, on evening of April 4, 1934. 
The first degree was exemplified in a very capable 
manner. Financial conditions are good though as 
in other lodges arrears of dues are becoming a 
serious consideration. Masonic Education is pro- 
gressing very favorably in this lodge. 

Harris Lodge, Orangeville, was visited on April 
10th. The first degree was exemplified, and I was 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 159 

pleased to hear a favorable report of a Past Mast- 
er's Association just having been formed for the 
promotion of the Masonic Art. 

On April 24th I visited Prince Arthur Lodge, 
Arthur, and was greeted by a very large attendance 
of local and visiting brethren. Work included open- 
ing and closing in the first and second degrees. 
At this time I gave a talk along educational lines 
with the subject "King Solomon's Temple". I 
was impresssed by the very friendly and fraternal 
spirit, which pervades this lodge. 

Lome Lodge, Shelburne, was visited on May 
4th. The first degree was exemplified and Senior 
Warden Hughes had the pleasure of helping to 
initiate his son into the Order. Masonic Education 
is, and has been, well looked after in this lodge, 
and the lodge is also in good financial condition. 

On May 7th it was our pleasure to visit Scott 
Lodge, Grand Valley. The exemplification of the 
first degree left little to be desired, the general 
work was excellent. The finances of this lodge are in 
good shape and benevolent work is carried out in a 
capable way. Present with us that night was W. 
Bro. R. F. Taylor, a member of fifty year's stand- 
ing. 

My last official visit was to Hiram Lodge, 
Markdale, on May 14th. There being no degree 
work the lodge was opened and closed in the 
three degrees in which as in other lodges I gave 
various instructions relating to the work as re- 
ceived from Lodge of Instruction. The work as 
given was very well done. 

Grey District was indeed honored this past 
year in having both the Grand Master and the 
Deputy Grand Master pay visits to us. 

Most Worshipful Bro. F. A. Copus, visited 
Grey District at Owen Sound on May 18th. There 
was a most excellent representation of the District, 



160 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and I was pleased to present ten of the twelve 
ruling Masters to the Grand Master. The brethren 
were delighted to hear the Grand Master in a 
most inspiring address. Grey District will be 
pleased and honored to welcome M.W. Bro. 
Copus on any future occasion he desires to visit us. 

One week later on Friday May 25th, it was 
our privilege to have Deputy Grand Master, A. J. 
Anderson, conduct the ceremony of dedicating 
Prince Arthur lodge, Flesherton. He was accom- 
panied by a number of distinguished brethren from 
Toronto. In a truly impressive manner R. W. 
Bro. Anderson performed his duties, and later the 
brethren listened to a worth-while message on 
Masonic Ideals and Aims. To commemorate his 
visit he was presented by the Flesherton Lodge 
with a wooden gavel of twelve parts representative 
of the Grey District Lodges. The brethren of 
Grey district who heard him that evening look 
forward with confidence to the time when he will 
assume the chair in the Grand East. 

The Annual District Church Service was held 
in the Anglican Church, Markdale, on Sunday 
afternoon, June 17th, with Bro. Rev. C. O. Pherrill, 
District Chaplain, in charge. While the attendance 
was not quite up to expectations, due mainly to the 
road building south of Markdale, the brethren 
present heard a wonderful discourse from Bro. 
Pherrill, and I feel that I made a good choice in 
the matter of District Chaplain. Bro. Rev. 
Pherrill has accompanied me on various visits, and 
I found we always had a worth while message 
from him. 

I can not close my term of office without 
again thanking the brethren of Grey District for 
*heir part in electing me to this high office and 
making this past year the best one I have ever 
enjoyed. It is possible to look back and see where 
some things might have been done better, however, 
I leave that for others to judge, and if I have suc- 
ceeded in even a small degree to promote the cause 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 161 

of Freemasonry during my term of office I shall 
feel amply rewarded and that my efforts have not 
been fruitless. 

I am looking forward to future occasions to 
again meeting the brethren of the district and 
renewing the friendships I have made during my 
year as District Deputy Grand Master for Grev 
District. 

Sincerely and Fraternally submitted, 
W. H. KRESS, 
D.D.G.M. Grev District. 



162 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

HAMILTON A 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren : 

I have the honor to submit my report as 
District Deputy Grand Master of Hamilton Ma- 
sonic District "A" for the period ending June 30th 
1934. 

In taking over my duties a year ago I ap- 
pointed Wor. Bro. J. W. Hamilton, District Sec- 
retary and W. Bro. R. H. Gapes, District Chaplain. 

During the year I visited all the lodges in the 
district, most of them several times. At those 
meetings, notice of which appeared in the monthly 
summons, the Wor. Master opened and closed his 
lodge in the three degrees. In each degree I gave 
the members the correct penalty and explained and 
demonstrated the proper making of the signs. As 
candidates were few degrees were not worked at all 
my visits but I may say that during the year I did 
see at least one degree worked by each lodge. 

The opening and closing ceremonies and the 
working of -the several degrees leaves little room for 
criticism, the work of all those taking part showing 
preparation and earnest endeavour. 

"Who does his best does all he can 
In doing his best does well indeed." 

The tone of the work and the atmosphere created 
were all that a Mason could desire, the dignity and 
solemnity of the ceremonies being maintained to a 
marked degree. 

Owing to illness I was unable to visit Valley 
Lodge No. 100, Dundas, on the night set out on 
their notice. I asked my immediate predecessor, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 163 

R.W. Bro. Chas. E. Dickson, to substitute for me. 
This he did on very short notice. I visited Valley 
Lodge at their next regular meeting and there 
thanked R. W. Bro. Dickson for the gracious man- 
ner in which he had responded to mv emergencv 
call. 

The District Chaplain W. Bro. R. H. Gapes, 
accompanied me on all my visits, always ready and 
willing to perform any duty assigned him. His 
quiet, pleasing personality and happy smile diffus- 
ing such friendliness that any stiffness that might 
be present soon disappeared. I have much for 
which to thank W. Bro. Gapes. 

I am pleased to report that the addresses and 
speeches in the banquet rooms of the lodges I 
attended, and I visited a number outside Hamilton 
District "A", were on a plane considerably above 
those made in the years immediately past. This 
improvement, Most Worshipful Sir, is, I believe, 
due in no small measure to you. 

My appointment of W. Bro. Hamilton as 
District Secretary has proven very fortunate. His 
work has been painstaking and thorough. His pro- 
fession and business training qualifying him for the 
work, his opinions and findings have very real 
worth. I have been guided to a considerable ex- 
tent by them. W. Bro. Hamilton read and checked 
all the minutes of every meeting during the year of 
each lodge in the district. Errors and omissions 
appear in a number of places. For instance, a 
minute reads: "Moved by — seconded by — 'That 
the dues of certain brethren be remitted,' no 
names appear. Again where suspensions for N.P.D. 
were made — the names of the suspended brethren 
did not appear." 

Errors where noted were corrected. 

It is suggested that Grand Lodge issue a 
pamphlet to Lodge Secretaries specifically setting 
out in more detail than appears in the Book of 



164 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Constitution the manner in which Lodge Minutes 
shall be kept, emphasizing the necessity for cor- 
rectness and full details of all the work and busi- 
ness done at each meeting of a lodge. The atten- 
tion of secretaries should be drawn also to the 
necessity for having such a record that a member's 
standing as regards his dues may be ascertained 
at any time. 

It is recommended that the doubtful lodge 
asset "Outstanding Dues" be carefully analyzed 
by the Worshipful Master of each lodge. All lodges 
have on their books a certain amount which will 
never be collected, why not remit or suspend as the 
case may warrant thereby reducing this asset to a 
figure which more correctly reflects its real value. 
Under estimated liabilities and over estimated 
assets always lead to disaster. 

In some instances auditors have not properly 
appreciated the importance of the work they are 
called upon to perform. Their reports being what 
may be termed "sketchy". Carelessness on the 
part of auditors over an extended period cannot 
fail to lead to trouble and discord. 

The Auditor's Report is generally presented 
on the occasion of the installation ceremony, as it 
is there required. It takes a very secondary place 
in the proceedings of the evening, the members 
soon forgetting all about it. In those lodges where 
it is printed and distributed but few of the mem- 
bers take the trouble to study it, many cannot 
understand it. Would it not be well if the Wor- 
shipful Master, at the regular meeting immediately 
following installation were to call upon the auditors 
to explain their report and give them an oppor- 
tunity to enlarge upon those points they wish to 
stress. They would then know what was expected 
of them. They would prepare a proper report and 
be ready to make explanations and answer ques- 
tions and the brethren would be fully posted as to 
the financial condition of their lodge and be guided 
accordingly. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1934 ■ 165 

I regret to report that Lodge Records are not 
properly taken care of. Minute books, ledgers and 
other records are kept in the homes and offices of 
Secretaries and Treasurers, some are left in their 
desks in the lodge rooms. The hazard of loss by 
fire seems to be entirely forgotten. I would re- 
spectfully recommend that Grand Lodge advise 
Masters of Lodges to look into this condition with 
a view to its correction. 

On Sunday, Dec. 18th, 1933, and again on 
June 17th, 1934 the lodges in the Hamilton Dis- 
tricts attended Divine Service. The first service 
was under the auspices of Dundurn Lodge No. 475, 
the second under those of Electric Lodge No. 495. 
Bro. the Rev. Dr. J. E. Hughson of First United 
Church, taking the service in the former instance 
and R.W. Bro. the Rev. Geo. H. Williams of 
Ryerson United Church, the latter. The attend- 
ance on each occasion was above the average. It 
would be well if every Mason would avail himself 
of such opportunities to show to the people of the 
community in which he lives that the Craft believes 
in the public worship of God and that attendance 
at church is a duty not to be neglected by a 
Mason. 

The progress of Masonic Education in the 
district is difficult to estimate. That progress is 
being made I am sure. Each lodge in the district 
has its Committee on Education. These committees 
taking the manual as their text books are working 
in their own lodges, the work being done and the 
results accomplished being influenced, of course, to 
a great extent, by the individuality of the members 
of each committee. Many of the addresses given 
in the banquet rooms have been of an interesting 
Masonic educative character. 

The brethren have absorbed Masonic knowl- 
edge, may I say, quite unconsciously. Informal 
discussions among members of the Craft on matters 
of ceremony and ritual, the constitution and lodge 
bv-laws show distinctlv that these matters are 



166 * GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

receiving thought, in many cases where authoritative 
literature is available it is being read. If a healthy 
curiosity for the "how" the "why", the "where" 
and the "when" is fostered and satisfied it will not 
be long until an urgent desire for knowledge takes 
root. Then real Masonic education will grow 
apace. 

Hamilton Districts are fortunate in having two 
active auxiliary Masonic organizations; the Past 
Masters Association and the Masters and Wardens 
Association. Both are to be commended for the 
keen interest they take in the Craft and for the 
good work they are doing, the former acting in an 
advisory capacity, the latter for its endeavours to 
preserve uniformity in our work and ceremonies. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, I have had 
a very happy year. Wherever I have gone I have 
met with courtesy and kindness. As your repre- 
sentative I have been accorded due honors, expres- 
sions of loyalty and regard for Grand Lodge being 
made on every hand. 

To my brethren of the district I express my 
heartfelt thanks for their kindness to me. The 
honor of having served as District Deputy Grand 
Master is one I will never cease to value most 
highly. May my successor in office enjoy as happy 
a year as I have had. 

I have the honor to be, Most Worshipful Sir 
and Brethren, 

Yours Fraternally, 

C. M. PIERCY, 
D.D.G.M. Hamilton District "A". 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 167 

HAMILTON "B" 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren. 

I have pleasure in presenting herewith my re- 
port as District Deputy Grand Master of Hamilton 
Masonic District "B" for the year which has just 
closed. 

As District Secretary I appointed W. Bro. 
Roland F. Hill who performed his duties through- 
out the year in a most efficient manner. 

As District Chaplain it was my great pleasure 
to appoint Bro. Rev. D. A. Moir who, in spite of 
his eighty years of age, attended with me on each 
of my official visits and was a great source of 
inspiration and assistance at all times. My great 
regret is that he is not a Worshipful Brother so 
that his name might be recommended for further 
Masonic honors for he is an ardent Mason and an 
ornament to the craft. To both of these brethren 
I am greatly indebted for wise counsel and assist- 
ance. 

During the year I officially visited each of the 
seventeen lodges in the district and found them all 
in good condition, considering present economic 
conditions, and carrying on the work in a splendid 
manner. The Master and Officers of each lodge 
appear to be keenly interested in their work and 
although in these times there is not so much degree 
work as in former years still they all display not 
only earnestness and sincerity but very careful 
preparation of their work. The result is that there 
is very little in the great majority of cases for the 
District Deputy to criticize or comment upon. My 
conclusion is that Masonry in this district is in a 
healthy condition. 



Ms GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The question of non-payment of dues is one 
which is causing great concern to almost every 
lodge. This is a situation which is brought about 
by the present economic conditions. The lodges 
are each endeavoring to display the true Masonic 
spirit in refraining from suspending brethren for 
this cause except in cases of actual necessity but 
the result is that many of the lodges have been 
using up their reserves and are now facing a serious 
financial situation unless there is an improvement 
in economic conditions or another remedy found. 
Happily there appears during the last few months 
to be an improvement in conditions which is 
reflected in the increasing number of applications 
for membership and this may bring about an early 
improvement with regard to this unfortunate 
situation. 

There is a situation in some of the smaller 
lodges, particularly in the outlying districts which 
is a matter of concern for the whole craft. In 
many of these lodges applications for membership 
are a rare thing. The result is that there is no 
opportunity for degree work to be done, there is 
no new blood coming in, the officers are having 
difficulty in keeping up the interest of the members and 
these lodges are gradually decreasing in size and the 
members falling away. It is a discouraging outlook 
for them particularly as under present conditions 
there is little likelihood of obtaining new members 
probably for some time to come. The future of 
such lodges is uncertain and the members are be- 
coming disheartened. Masonic Education has 
given them a new interest and has helped the 
situation to some extent but only temporarily. 
Possibly some scheme could be worked out for the 
larger lodges to help out these lodges in some man- 
ner or possibly the Committee on Masonic Educa- 
tion might give some consideration as to how best 
to revive the interest in such lodges and assure 
their continuance as active Masonic bodies before 
it is too late. 

A word with regard to the time for closing 
Masonic evening meetings might not be out of 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1931 169 

order. It should not be necessary except on rare 
occasions to prolong a Masonic meeting beyond 
midnight. The members, or at least the most of 
them, prefer to be out by that hour and home if 
possible. Long drawn out meetings must neces- 
sarily tire the members and discourage many in 
future lodge attendance. It is much better to 
speed up the meetings and have them short and 
interesting than to have them long drawn out. 

It has been most gratifying to witness the 
keen interest displayed by the various lodges in the 
work of Masonic Education being promoted by the 
Grand Lodge Committee. Practically every lodge 
has appointed an active committee to carry on this 
work and the members are displaying a great desire 
to know more about Masonry and what it stands 
for. "Masonic Education Nights" have been held 
in various lodges, lectures given, questions asked 
and answered and altogether this has now become 
a most important feature of the work in most of 
the lodges. The Grand Lodge Committee deserves 
great commendation for their work as this is some- 
thing which was more or less neglected in most 
lodges during the past few years. 

Many interesting and important meetings were 
held during the year and while time and space will 
not permit reference to them all there is one to 
which I would refer particularly, namely, the visit 
of the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother 
F. A. Copus, to my mother lodge, Acacia Lodge 
No. 61, on Friday, October 13th, 1933. There was 
a large attendance of members including a great 
many past and present Grand Lodge Officers and 
the address of the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master was most inspiring and instructive. 

The office of District Deputy Grand Master 
carries with it burdens and responsibility which 
cannot be realized until one occupies the office. 
However, due to the splendid harmony that has 
prevailed in this district my duties have been par- 
ticularly pleasant and the burdens of office made 



170 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

lighter. I am deeply indebted to the numerous 
Past Masters, Ruling Masters and Members for the 
splendid loyalty and support they have given me 
and particularly have I appreciated the counsel and 
assistance of several of the past and present Grand 
Lodge Officers. Many of them accompanied me on 
several and others on all of my official visits and 
their presence on these occasions was always an 
inspiration. Particularly would I like to record my 
appreciation to R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon who with 
practically no advance notice substituted for me 
on one of my official visits when at the last moment 
it was impossible for me to attend. Also would I 
record my appreciation to W. Bros. George T. 
Evans and Bruce C. Beasley, who through the 
unavoidable absence of W. Bro. R. F. Hill acted 
as District Secretary on two or three of my official 
visits. 

It has been a great privilege for me to serve 
in the capacity of District Deputy Grand Master 
and it has been my desire at all times to merit the 
confidence placed in me by the brethren of this 
Masonic District and that I might render some real 
service to the Order. That has been my ambition 
throughout my term of office and I sincerely trust 
that success in this respect may have been attained 
in some measure at least. 

In conclusion may I again express to the mem- 
bers of this district my sincere appreciation and 
thanks for the many courtesies extended to me 
during my term of office and at the same time be- 
speak for my successor the same enthusiastic co- 
operation and support which has at all times been 
so kindly extended to me. 

Yours fraternally, 

T. H. SIMPSON, 
D.D.G.M. Hamilton District "B" 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 171 

LONDON DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In submitting my report on the condition of 
Masonry in this London District, it is with a feel- 
ing that is shared by many occupying this office, 
that in representing one so worthy, we his District 
Deputies have failed to reflect the credit upon our 
Grand^Master that we should. 

I desire here to thank the brethren of London 
Masonic District for the honour conferred on me 
and my Mother Lodge, Mount Olivet No. 300 
and to express my appreciation for the loyalty and 
support, and the encouragement which I have 
received from my brethren, making my duties 
pleasant and at the same time easy because of the 
cordiality of my receptions and the general pro- 
ficiency of the officers of the various lodges, also the 
pleasure which has been given to me, on behalf of 
the different lodges, to present on various occasions, 
long service medals, Past Master's jewels, life 
membership certificates and other tokens of esteem 
and affection to those who have served their 
lodges and their brethren. 

For the sake of brevity I shall omit the names 
of those who so kindly and faithfully accompanied 
me on my visits, to the many courtesies extended 
and to the assistance given to all the banquets and 
social times which I fully enjoyed, and in doing 
this I hope those from whom I have received so 
much will not think me ungrateful. 

My first official act was the appointment of 
W. Bro. J. M. Carrothers, a P.M. of Mount 
Olivet No. 300 to be District Secretary. W. Bro. 
Carrothers in accepting and filling this office the 
way he has, has relieved me of the large amount of 



172 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

correspondence which otherwise would have fallen 
to my lot. He has accompanied me on every official 
visit and on many other occasions, has kept a 
record of the work of the district, has inspected the 
books of every lodge and reported to me that the 
secretaries have endeavored to keep their accounts 
accurate and in order and to record the work that 
is being carried on which is so necessary for the 
present and will be of greater interest in the years 
to come. 

In the discharge of the duties of my office I 
have paid an official visit to every lodge in the 
district besides being able to be present on many 
other occasions during the year. Every official 
visit with the exception of one was made on a 
regular lodge night. I feel that it is not necessary 
and therefore do not intend to give a detailed 
account of each visit, because in commenting on 
the work it would just be a repetition of the 
account of work well and splendidly performed. 
In 22 of the 23 lodges of the district work was 
performed and I am pleased to be able to state 
that in nearly all cases it was the conferring of 
degrees on candidates for initiation in the other 
cases where there were no candidates a degree was 
exemplified. The fact of candidates entering our 
lodges goes in some measure to show the condition 
of the craft in the district, and while we are pleased 
to have applications I have felt it my duty to 
impress upon our lodges the importance of the work 
of our committees on character to guard our portals 
at all times, to see that there is no lowering of our 
standards, and that worthy men alone are ad- 
mitted to our order. 

It is also a pleasure to speak of the faithful- 
ness of the officers of the different lodges that on 
my visits degree work has been done almost with- 
out exception by the W.M. and his regular officers. 
The work in the district is being performed in a 
uniform manner and in accordance with Grand 
Lodge requirements, due in a large measure to the 
work of Past District Deputies and it afforded me 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 173 

a great deal of pleasure to be able to congratulate 
the officers on their work. Any criticisms which I 
made where of a trivial character because I found 
very little to correct, I believe the brethren are 
faithfully trying to do their duty, and although I 
urged the importance of accuracy in presenting the 
form of Masonry, the essential thing is being true 
to the spirit and teachings of our order, of living 
our Masonry outside the lodge, both to our breth- 
ren and to our fellow beings. 

The candidates for advancement have been in 
all cases carefully instructed, and I have found 
that nearly all Masters are also examining their 
new M.M. on that degree. 

The Educational work has been carried on as 
outlined by the Committee on Education. The 
District Secretary sent out a request that com- 
mittees be appointed in the lodges for this work, 
and while we feel that more might have been done 
yet we know that instruction has been given. I 
have urged the study of our Grand Lodge report 
and have stressed the importance of the informa- 
tion that may be obtained from the master by 
reviews of other Grand Lodges in the Fraternal 
Correspondence. The play "Over to the Enemy" 
was presented in the district last fall, also the 
play, "The honor of the Craft" was given in 
the Tuscan Lodge No. 195, at a regular meeting. 
I have also endeavored at all my official visits in 
speaking to the lodge to briefly bring before them 
something on the great principles of Freemasonry 
as taught by its symbolism and relating to char- 
acter, virtue, and the high ideals of manhood. 

An event unique in Masonry and of special 
interest to the lodges situated in the City of London 
is the joint installation of the W.M. and the in- 
vesture of the officers of the ten city lodges. It 
was my pleasure to appoint R.W. Bro. W. Rath 
as Installing Officer and with the team chosen by 
him he performed the work in a manner that could 
not fail to impress the new officers with their 



174 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

responsibility. After the ceremony the brethren 
sat down to a banquet at the close of which Rev. 
Bro. M. J. Colling of Kingsville a former member 
of the district was the guest speaker. 

London District is fortunate in having an 
enthusiastic Past Masters Association which is 
doing a real work in cementing the district in 
friendship, in bringing outstanding speakers to its 
meetings, and thereby spreading inspiration and 
instruction. This Association was indeed fortunate 
in securing M.W. Bro. Rowland as speaker for its 
first meeting this year. Bro. Rowland gave us an 
account of his trip to the dedication of the Mem- 
orial Masonic Temple in London, England, of his 
impressions of that visit, and so vivid were the 
word pictures that he gave us of that great cere- 
mony that all who heard surely enjoyed the event 
with him. May this association have the support 
of the district that it may enlarge its sphere of use- 
fulness and find still greater work to do for the 
district. 

Among the items of interest in a number of the 
lodges has been the presentation by the lodges of 
the Grand Lodge long service medals to those en- 
titled them. "The Tuscan" Xo. 195 and her 
veterans were signally honored by the presence of 
the M.W. the Grand Master, who presented seven 
medals on that evening, an evening never to be 
forgotten by all those who witnessed the event, and 
who heard M.W. Bro. Copus address at the ban- 
quet hour. 

The M.W. and officers of the various lodges 
are to be complimented on the efforts which they 
have made and the success attained in creating 
and maintaining interest in their lodge meetings. 
This has been done not onlv bv good degree work, 
but by special nights with degree teams, giving 
those who may not on the ordinary nights, have 
the privilege of learning the work and assisting in 
conferring degrees. There has also been an ex- 
change of fraternal visits among the lodges, not 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 175 

only of those within our own district but with 
lodges of other districts, the practice of which I 
am sure I cannot too highly commend, because it 
surely helps not only the lodge which gives, but 
also the one which receives the visit. In this 
connection I would like to mention my pleasure at 
being able this year to bring the greetings of 
London District and to be so cordially welcomed 
into Wilson, St. Thomas and South Huron Dis- 
tricts. The problem of finance, of dues, of sus- 
pensions is still with us but I believe the Masters 
and Officers are still trying to solve and work out 
these questions for the good of the brethren, the 
lodge, and the Grand Lodge. 

The practice of the various lodges of attending 
divine service in a body is one which not only 
benefits those who attend, but places our order 
before the public in a way which may make our 
true aims and teachings more generally known. It 
is a pleasure to be able to report that this is the 
general practice of most of the lodges of this 
district, and it has been my privilege to attend 
with a number of them this year and to note the 
interest that has been manifested. Our district 
divine service was held this vear in Centennial 
United Church on May 20, when about 400 breth- 
ren were addressed by the pastor of the church, 
Rev. Dr. Hazen, his subject being, "The Two 
Pillars". The choir of the church were assisted 
at the service by a Masonic Choir under the direc- 
tion of W. Bro. J. H. Woodward. 

London District will surely place the visit of 
M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus as the most outstanding 
event of the year. The G.M. paid his official visit 
on the evening of April 19, 1934, when he was 
tendered a dinner and reception in Hotel London, 
after going to the Masonic Temple where lodge 
was opened by Moffat Lodge No. 399. A very 
large attendance from the district were present 
along with a splendid representation of Grand 
Lodge and Past Grand Lodge Officers. It was my 
privilege on that occasion to introduce the M.W. 



176 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Grand Master to the brethren assembled and after- 
ward to present to him 21 of the 23 ruling masters 
of the district. M.W. Bro. Copus then addressed 
the gathering impressing upon them the seriousness 
of the task and the responsibility that rests with 
every Mason. May the day speedily come when 
the ideals of Freemasonry which he placed before 
us be realized. The lodge was closed bv the W.M. 
and Officers of Doric No. 289. 

It is always with a feeling of sorrow that we 
part with friends and by the hand of death nearly 
every lodge has suffered this year. Some of those 
called from us had been Masons for many years 
while others had been w r ith us but a few short 
months, surely the Grim Reaper is no respecter of 
persons. Not only have their respective lodges 
suffered but the whole district in the passing of 
three past Grand Lodge Officers, R.W. Bro. J. 
Tancock, R.W. Bro. H. J. Childs, and V.W. Bro. J. 
Graham. Our sympathy goes out to those who 
have been bereaved. 

In conclusion may I say it has been earnest 
desire and endeavor to fill the high and responsible 
office you placed me in to the best of my ability. 
I have endeavored to instill into the hearts of the 
brethren the dignity and the high importance of 
Freemasonry and to inculcate the high ideals which 
it teaches. All my services have been more than 
repaid by the kindness I have received. The sacred 
trust given me one year ago I shall be pleased to 
hand to my successor in the full assurance that he 
will find a loyal welcome awaiting him in every 
lodge in the district. 

All of which is fraternally submitted, 

V. A. TACKABURY, 
D.D.G.M. London District.

MUSKOKA DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Herewith I have the honor to present my 
report as District Deputy Grand Master of Mus- 
koka District for the Masonic year now completed. 

May I first express my deep appreciation of the 
high honour conferred upon me by the brethren of 
the District in electing me as their District Deputy 
Grand Master. 

My first official act was to appoint W. Bro. 
J. T. Andrews as District Secretary and Bro. Rev. 
A. Carman Hie as District Chaplain. Both of 
these brethren are members of my own lodge, 
Muskoka No. 360, and to them I owe a deep debt 
of gratitude for their untiring efforts and assistance 
during the year. Bro. Andrews accompanied me 
on all of my official visits and the memory of our 
close association will always be a pleasure to me. 

I gratefully acknowledge the assistance and 
co-operation of the Past District Deputy Grand 
Masters, Past Masters, Ruling Masters and Mem- 
bers of the District and shall not soon forget their 
wonderful hospitality shown throughout the year. 

The most important event of the year was the 
District Reception tendered the Most Worshipful 
the Grand Master at Bracebridge on May 11th. 
Most Worshipful Bro. Copus was accompanied by 
M.W. Bro. Dargavel. The inspiring address "Ma- 
sonry in Action" delivered by M.W. Bro. Copus, 
will long be remembered by those who had the 
good fortune to be in attendance. 



ITS GRAND LODGE OF CAXADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

My first official visit was to Algonquin Lodge 
No. 434, Emsdale, Nov. 7, 1933. The First degree 
was conferred in a most creditable manner by the 
officers of the lodge. I was pleased to meet many 
dd friends at Algonquin among them being their 
veteran secretary R.W. Bro. Metcalfe. There 
were five Past District Deputy Grand Masters 
present and the reception tendered by Algonquin 
Officers and Members was a typical Algonquin 
Reception. Work well done and genuine friend- 
liness abounding. 

I visited my Mother Lodge, Muskoka No. 360, 
on Feb. 6. As I am a regular and constant attend- 
ant at my own lodge, I expected that my official 
visit would be regarded as an ordinary meeting, but 
the brethren would not have it that way and the 
warmth of my welcome in my own lodge and the 
magnificent banquet provided showed the apprecia- 
tion of the lodge of having one of their number 
honored by the brethren of the district. The work 
done in Muskoka Lodge is invariably of the very 
highest type. Every officer takes a great interest 
in his work and the whole is very ably and efficient- 
ly managed by the Worshipful Master, who has 
been honored by election to the Chair for the 
second time. To the Wor. Master (Wor. Bro. 
Dr. Bastedo), the officers and members of Muskoka 
Lodge No. 360. Greetings' 

Golden Rule Lodge No. 409, Gravenhurst, 
received me officially on Feb. 12th. I visit Golden 
Rule on many occasions and am always pleased 
with the work of the officers of this lodge. A 
beautiful Masonic library, largely the gift of en- 
thusiastic members, is possessed by Golden Rule 
Lodge and this should be of great assistance and 
instruction to those seeking Masonic knowledge. 
I am always pleased to hear the report of the Sick 
and Visiting Committee of Golden Rule. This is 
one real live committee and they have ample 
opportunity for real Masonry amongst the unfor- 
tunate brethren of the Craft who are patients in 
the Sanitarium which is in close proximity to 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 179 

Gravenhurst and I am sure these brethren greatly 
appreciate the efforts of Golden Rule Lodge on 
their behalf. 

On Wed. Mar. 14th I visited Unity Lodge, 
Huntsville. I was sorry at being unable to meet 
and greet the W. Master of Unity Lodge on this 
occasion, his absence being caused through illness. 
Unity Lodge has an unusually capable set of 
officers and is fortunate in always retaining the 
interest and influence of its Past Masters and Past 
District Deputy Grand Masters in such large 
numbers. Many visiting brethren were present and 
I will long remember the hospitality of the brethren 
of Unity. 

On May 14th I had the pleasure of paying my 
official visit to Corona Lodge No. 454, Burks Falls. 
This lodge is in the hands of very capable officers, 
who accorded me a right royal welcome. I am 
grateful indeed for council and guidance so grac- 
iously given by R.W. Bro. Wilson and my im- 
mediate predecessor in office, R.W. Bro. Bunt. 

Strong Lodge No. 423, Sundridge, was the 
place of my official visit on May 21st. Here again 
I was greeted by a large gathering of members and 
visitors and I was glad to make the acquaintance 
of many brethren heretofore unknown to me. 
Many past District Deputy Grand Masters were 
present, indeed every lodge in this district seems 
to be blessed with an abundance of interested and 
enthusiastic past officers. The work of this lodge 
is carried on with accuracy and precision. 

I visited Powassan Lodge No. 443, Powassan 
on the night of their regular June Meeting. I was 
most agreeably surprised at the beautiful lodge 
home of the brethren of Powassan, as I had not 
had the pleasure of visiting this lodge, on any 
previous occasion. The lodge is to be congratu- 
lated on the calibre of its officers and so long as 
Masonry continues to draw men who take pride 



ISO GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

in work well done, there need be no fear for the 
progress of our Noble Science in this jurisdiction. 

My final official visit was at Granite Lodge 
No. 352, Parry Sound. Granite Lodge is the Senior 
Lodge of this District, and is usually regarded as 
the Banner Lodge of the District. It has about 
twice the membership of any other lodge in the 
district and possesses very beautiful and com- 
modious lodge premises, owned by the lodge. 
Unfortunately June 20th, this year, was not the 
most auspicious date to choose for an official visit, 
as most of the brethren had stayed up late on the 
19th. The number present was not large for 
Granite but the work of the evening was most com- 
mendable and seldom have I heard the lectures 
more impressively delivered and I am going back 
some night when the members of Granite are out 
in force. The officers and members present accorded 
me a most hearty welcome.

NIAGARA DISTRICT "A" 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honor to present to you my report 
on the condition of Masonrv in Niagara District 
A for the year 1933-34. 

My first duty was the appointment of a Dis- 
trict Secretary in the person of W. Bro. Barclay 
D. Hull to whom I wish to extend my sincere 
appreciation for the excellent manner in which he 
performed the duties of that office. 

I had him notify the lodges of the district as 
to what was required of them by the Committee 
of Masonic Education and also placed at their 
disposal for lectures on the various Masonic sub- 
jects when requested the services of R.W. Bro. 
A. E. Coombs, Bro. P.Hulse, Bro. (Dr.) Werden, 
Bro. Mel Brock, and W. Bro. A. H. Trapnell. 

The lodges availed themselves of this oppor- 
tunity almost as a whole and some eleven ad- 
dresses were given on the various subjects chosen 
which were greatly appreciated by the brethren 
present. 

We also had the pleasure on the evening of 
January 18th of listening to a very fine address 
given by the Most Worshipful Past Grand Master 
W. S. Herrington to the Masons and their families 
of the district on his visit to the Grand Lodge of 
England and the dedication of their wonderful 
Peace Memorial Temple, which received many 
expressions of appreciation from the large assembly 
present. 

Seven lodges of the district held At Homes for 
their members and families during the winter 



1S2 GRAND LODGE OF CAXADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

months and an abundance of goodfellowship pre- 
vaded each meeting which must necessarily rebound 
to the good of the order. 

The conferring of the degrees in the different 
lodges of this district was done in a very efficient 
and uniform manner, by the Wor. Masters and 
officers, assisted by a large number of Past Masters 
of which no criticism was required. 

Of the many fine meetings I attended officially 
during the year in this district, there was one which 
calls for special mention on my part, that of 
Temple Lodge Xo. 296 St. Catharines, on which 
occasion after conferring the second degree in a 
faultless manner, they presented to me an illum- 
inated certificate of honorary membership which 
will recall to my mind in the years to come those 
fine Masonic principles of friendship and brotherly 
love. 

The majority of the lodges have had their 
usual number of candidates and while some have 
suffered for the want of them, yet as a whole they 
are carrying on optimistically and in a fair fin- 
ancial condition, which denotes that all lodges are 
well officered to meet the economic conditions 
prevailing. 

On the evening of May 7th we were favored 
by a visit from the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master Bro. Frank A. Copus, and after a compli- 
mentary banquet at the Welland Hotel he was 
received by a representative turnout of the brethren 
from the lodges of A District, to whom he gave a 
splendid address covering the many phases of our 
present economic conditions and the fundamental 
principles of our beloved Order, all of which was 
listened to with rapt attention, making a fitting 
climax to a very enjoyable Masonic year. 

I cannot close this report without expressing 
my belief that the Secretaries of our district are 
second to none and their books are kept in a man- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 



1S3 



ner to meet all of the requirements of Grand Lodge 
laid down in the book of constitution. 



In conclusion may I express my sincere apre- 
ciation to the brethren of Niagara District A for 
the distinct honor they conferred on me and my 
mother lodge, Maple Leaf No. 103, St. Catharines, 
in electing me as District Deputy Grand Master 
and W. Bro. A. E. Coombs as Grand Senior 
Warden. 

Yours fraternally, 

S. J. INKSATER, 
D.D.G.M. Niagara District A

NIAGARA DISTRICT "B" 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful .Sir and Brethren: 

The writer desires to once again express to the 
brethren of this district his sincere appreciation of 
the honor of being elected as D.D.G.M. 

At Welland on February 2nd, 1934, we had the 
pleasure of welcoming to the district our M.W. 
Bro. Frank A. Copus, Grand Master, who gave us a 
splendid address. 

R.W. Bro. Wm. C. Tait, a past D.D.G.M. of 
Niagara Xo. 10 was Chairman of this meeting. 
There were representatives of 37 different lodges 
present. 

On Februarv 6th we paid our official visit to 
Palmer Lodge No. 372 at Fort Erie, North. This 
lodge had just recently moved into their new hall 
with very commodious rooms, splendidly equipped 
kitchen, banquet hall, etc. 

There is every evidence that the members of 
this lodge are interested in its welfare; much time 
and work have been freely given by the brethren 
and this has kept down construction costs very 
considerably. 

In the absence of degree work the W.M. 
opened and closed in the several degrees in a very 
efficient manner. 

At this meeting we notified the brethren that 
W. Bro. G. E. French of Niagara Falls, Ontario 
was our appointee in charge of Masonic Education. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 185 

We visited MacNab Lodge No. 169 at Port 
Colborne on February 13th. where we witnessed 
the conferring of the Third degree in a very capable 
manner and accompanied by music. They have a 
very fine and well-lighted lodge room which is con- 
ducive to good work. In the building housing the 
lodge there are a good sized banquet hall and two 
flats — the latter both rented and producing a 
substantial income under present-day conditions. 

The W.M. appoints a member each month to 
prepare a program for the social hour. On this 
occasion Dr. Butcher read a very instructive paper 
on "Ancient Dentistry". 

Although the night of February 26th was one 
of very low temperature, we received a warm wel- 
come when being presented to Merritt Lodge No. 
168 at Welland 

There was a good attendance, the Second 
degree accompanied by musical ritual, was conferred 
in a faultless manner. A short memorial service for 
a recently deceased brother was conducted by the 
Chaplain who fills his office perfectly and adorns 
the same. All officers very punctilious in their 
work — full salutations each time; looks good and 
sounds good; is dignified and finished. 

On visiting Dominion Lodge No. 615 at Ridge- 
way on March 1st we learned with regret of the 
illness of R.W. Bro. J. L. Brodie who was elected 
the first D.D.G.M. of the newly-created Niagara 
"B". Despite a cold night there was a good 
attendance. 

W. Bro. Winger and his officers exemplified 
the First degree very well — the lecture of the J.W. 
being worthy of especial mention. We were 
present at Tyrian Lodge, Buffalo, when Dominion 
Lodge paid a fraternal visit and exemplified the 
work of our Second degree; it was a pleasure to 
view this ceremony and I jokingly remarked that I 
would be spared a second visit to Ridgeway. 



186 GRAND LODGE OF CAXADA AXXl'AL COMMUNICATION 

A packed lodge-room greeted us when we called 
officially on Stamford Lodge No. 626, Stamford 
Centre, March 7th. 

Here we had the pleasure to witness the Third 
degree being conferred on the son of one of those 
with whom we first became acquainted when we 
took up residence at Niagara Falls some 28 years 
ago. 

The musical ritual was used and, as always, it 
added much to the sublimity of the degree. 

On being asked my opinion concerning the 
issuance of Bi-monthly summonses I stated that 
although there was undoubtedly some pecuniary 
benefit this was probably offset by loss of contact 
with the brethren — many probably were aware of 
the first meeting but forgot about the second one. 

The writer was initiated in St. Marks Lodge 
No. 105 in the year 1907. The lodge met at that 
time in the Township Hall on Ferry Street, Drum- 
mondville or Niagara Falls South. It now meets 
in the Temple located at No. 1279 Victoria Ave. 

I visited this lodge officially on March 13th. 
The work of the evening was the conferring of the 
Third degree and W. Bro. Wade and his officers 
;vere congratulated on the excellent manner in 
tvhich the ceremony was performed — the floor work 
being worth}' of note. 

The evening of March 20th found us being 
formally introduced to the members of Fort Erie 
Lodge No. 613 meeting at Fort Erie South. A 
large attendance greeted us here and the First 
degree was conferred by W. Bro. H. E. Willson 
and his staff in a very impressive manner. 

On April 17th I dropped in, informally, to 
see the Second degree conferred in a very fine 
manner on Bro. W. W. Hunt, the candidate of the 
previous meeting. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 187 

Myrtle Lodge No. 337, Port Robinson, was 
visited officially on March 27th. 

There was a large attendance as there was no 
degree work the W.M's conduct of the opening and 
closing of the several degrees was evidence that 
any work which might be presented would be 
creditably executed. The social atmosphere of this 
lodge is proverbial. 

The hospitality of King Edward VII Lodge 
No. 471 Chippawa is well known throughout the 
Niagara Peninsula and beyond. We visited them 
officially on April 4th and were greeted with a very 
large attendance. Stamford Lodge met on the 
same night but closed early and as an act of 
fraternal courtesy they brought one of their new 
members to Chippawa where the Second degree 
was conferred very efficiently. 

The following evening we visited Copestone 
Lodge No. 373 at Welland. There was a good 
attendance and the First degree, accompanied by 
musical ritual was conferred very capably. From 
data supplied by its secretary the members of this 
lodge were made aware of the fact that they did not 
have a "balanced budget". W. Bro. Tattersall 
also presented a very instructive report dealing 
with the lodge's membership. The lodge starting 
in 1879 had had its records destroyed by fire in 
1888, but new ones had been compiled; there had 
been a total of only 92 suspensions since 1879 and 
at the present time there were 32 members of 25 
years standing or longer. 

We have always entertained a warm feeling 
for Phoenix Lodge No. 535 at Fonthill for it was 
our privilege to be present and take part in a very 
important function at the time R.W. Bro. C. J. 
Didemus was D.D.G.M. of Niagara 10. 

On April 16th we found a large number of 
brethren awaiting our introduction. My secretary, 
W. Bro. Jesse T. Ruley informed me that in the 



1SS GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION* 

lodge room he counted 3 R.W. Bros., 2. V.W. Bros, 
and 24 ruling and past Masters. 

There being no degrees to confer the W.M. 
raised and lowered the lodge in such a manner as 
to leave no doubt as to the capabilities of the 
officers in conferring degrees should the opportunity 
present itself. 

On May 3rd we paid our official visit to 
Clifton Lodge No. 254 Niagara Falls. 

There being no work we had the W.M. raise 
and lower his lodge; he is assisted by a capable 
staff of officers and it is almost needless to say how 
well they responded to our request. 

It fell to our lot to present W. Bro. Wesley 
M. Morse with a Past Master's Jewel and we 
found much pleasure in doing so. 

Adoniram Lodge No. 573 was officially visited 
on May 21st. Despite the intense heat there was a 
large attendance; 25 members of Erie Lodge No. 
149 of Port Dover (my old-home town) several 
members of Erie Lodge No. 161 Buffalo, and mem- 
bers from Tyrian Lodge No. 925 Buffalo and Ni- 
agara Frontier No. 132 Niagara Falls, N.Y. were 
registered — as were also many from our district. 
R.W. Bro. Pattison presented W. Bro. G. E. Pedlar 
with a P.M. Jewel. The official visitor was the 
recipient of gifts but most pleasing of all was the 
fact that the members of Adoniram Lodge did not 
forget Mrs. Stringer, they having presented a 
lovely flowering plant and I know of nothing which 
could have pleased her more. 

Lodge having been duly closed we were enter- 
tained by R.W. Bro. W. E. Cushing with a very 
instructive lecture accompanied by lantern slides. 
We feel very grateful to him for his kindness on 
this and many other occasions. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 189 

It was our good fortune to represent the M.W. 
the Grand Master at the dedication of Palmer 
Lodge No. 372, on June 5th. There was a splendid 
attendance which included many distinguished 
members of the Craft from both sides of the 
invisible boundary. 

The writer has been the recipient of many 
honors; besides the official visits above described he 
has been a guest at (a) a Reception in Erie Lodge 
No. 149, Port Dover; (b) Ancient Landmarks No. 
654 Hamilton; (c) Tyrian Lodge No. 925, Buffalo; 
(d) Transportation Lodge No. — , Buffalo; (e) 
Grand River Lodge No. 151 Kitchener; (f) Tecum- 
seh Lodge No. 151, Stratford, on the occasion of 
the admission of the son of our Grand Master. 

Space forbids any attempt at details of these 
visits but I hereby express my gratitude to those 
who arranged the same for us, and to the several 
lodges for their hospitality. How pleasant it was 
to hear the secretary of one of those lodges report 
that $650 had been transferred from the Reserve 
Fund to the Operating Account to cover the current 
dues of 65 unfortunate members." Food for 
thought? 

We have advocated (1) the reading of extracts 
from the "Proceedings of Grand Lodge" in lodge 
whenever the opportunity for so doing presents 
itself; (2) more careful scrutiny of those entering 
the lodge-room which is more or less synonymous 
with a lessening of the practice of "vouching"; 
there are a number of members holding "endorsed 
dimits" and numerous other suspended who still 
display masonic emblems and appear to be mem- 
bers of the Craft — visit other lodges and abuse 
their hospitality, etc. There is nothing more satis- 
fying than a bona fide Receipt for Dues; (3) less 
prompting of candidates in the early stages of the 
work; (4) more alertness on the part pf the Dea- 
cons with consequent avoidance of repetitions by 
the W.M. 



190 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Broadly speaking it may be said that the 
Auditors' Reports deal chiefly with the facts that 
certain sums of money have been received and that 
certain disbursements have been made. No refer- 
ence is made as to the "earning power" of the 
lodges and what it actually costs to operate them 
from year to year — what portion of bad debts was 
written off against profits, etc., etc. 

Attached we are submitting a very simple form 
which conveys considerable information and, in this 
case, shows that there was an Operating Profit of 
about S300 against which there would probably be 
charged from $50 to 8100 to extinguish an account 
that could be known as "Unpaid Dues of sus- 
pended Members" or create an account which 
could with equal proprietv be known as "Reserve 
for Bad Debts". 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

NIPISSING DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I herewith beg to present for your considera- 
tion my report on the Condition of Masonry in 
Nipissing District for 1933-34 term. First may I 
express my sincere thanks to the members who 
made it possible for me to hold the important 
office which 1 am now vacating. 

My first act of office was to appoint W. Bro. 
John Gribble as Secretary. He is a Past Master of 
Algonquin Lodge 536, Copper Cliff. His services 
were very much appreciated. 

On Monday, Sept. 11, 1933 I paid an official 
visit to a joint meeting of Keystone Lodge No. 412, 
Algoma Lodge No. 469 and Hatherly Lodge No. 
645 all situated at Sault Ste. Marie. The Most 
Worshipful the Grand Master, W. Bro. F. A. 
Copus and R.W. Bro. Logan were also present. 
Lodge was opened in prescribed form at 8.00 p.m. 
after a banquet which started at 6.30 p.m. W. 
Bro. E. R. Mclntyre of Algoma Lodge was in the 
East. No degree work was exemplified. M.W. 
Bro. Copus, R.W. Bro. Logan and I addressed the 
brethren. 

Masonry is in a good condition at the Soo, but 
in order to cut expenses it was decided this was to 
be my only visit during the year. 

On October 4, 1933, I paid an official visit to 
Espanola Lodge No. 527. Quite a number of 
brethren from Copper Cliff and Sudbury accom- 
panied me on this occasion. This was very much 
appreciated as at the present time there are less 
than a dozen resident members at Espanola. After 
the business of the evening had been taken care of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 193 

in an efficient manner the First degree was exem- 
plified with W. Bro. Boyd in the chair. I ad- 
dressed the brethren on the North East Corner and 
Charity. 

On October 11, 1933, I paid an official visit to 
Doric Lodge No. 455 at Little Current. W. Bro. 
A. M. Newby was in charge of the meeting which 
was well attended. There being no candidate, I 
had the officers open and close in the three degrees. 
This was done very efficiently. There is a very 
fine spirit of unity existing between the brethren 
here and there seems to be no doubt of the future 
of Doric. 

On October 23, 1933, I paid an official visit to 
Nipissing Lodge No. 420 at North Bay. Most 
Worshipful Bro. F. A. Copus and M.W. Bro. 
Dargavel P.G.M. were present at this meeting. 
There was no work exemplified. M.W. Bro. 
Copus addressed the brethren on this occasion. 
M.W. Bro. Dargavel followed with an address on 
Masonic Education and Benevolence while I spoke 
on Brotherhood. The meeting was well attended. 

Nipissing Lodge appears to be in a healthy 
condition and R.W. Bro. Nott, the secretary keeps 
his books in excellent shape. 

On February 12 I had the pleasure of again 
visiting Nipissing Lodge. 

After the business of the evening was disposed 
of R.W. Bro. Dunlop, Chairman of the Committee 
on Masonic Education, who was in attendance, 
gave a very interesting address on the Origin and 
Antiquity of Masonry. I would like to add that 
Nipissing Lodge is taking a deep interest in Ma- 
sonic Education. 

On the evening of November 7, 1933, I visited 
Mattawa Lodge No. 405. The First degree was 
exemplified in a very able manner by W. Bro. 
Betts and his officers. After the work of the even- 
ing I addressed the brethren. 



194 GRAND LODGfc, OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On June 11, 1934, Mattawa Lodge celebrated 
its Fiftieth Anniversary. Owing to other engage- 
ments I was unable to be present. The Deputy 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Anderson was present on 
this occasion and delivered two splendid addresses. 

During the afternoon the graves of all brethren 
buried in Mattawa Cemetery were decorated and 
at the banquet in the evening W. Bro. Sam Tongue, 
the only living Charter Member was presented with a 
walking cane. I have also been informed that a 
Past Master of Mattawa Lodge in person of W. 
Bro. T. J. Harwood, recently made a donation of 
S700.00 to the lodge to be used for Benevolent 
purposes. Brethren, this is showing the real spirit 
of Masonry. 

On the evening of November 27, 1933 I had 
the great pleasure of visiting Penewobikong Lodge 
No. 487 at Blind River. The work of the evening 
was raising a brother to the Sublime Degree of a 
Master Mason and was done in a very able man- 
ner. W. Bro. Xeil is to be commended for the 
efficiency of his work. 

Tuesday evening, November 28, 1933, found 
me visiting Dyment Lodge No. 442, located at 
Thessalon. There being no candidate, I had the 
Master of the lodge raise to the Third degree and 
at each step asked for exemplification of some part 
of the work. It was done in a very efficient 
manner. 

As Dvment Lodge had not yet made a start 
in the important work of Masonic Education, I 
addressed the brethren along these lines. 

Lome Lodge No. 622 at Chapleau gave me a 
heartv welcome when I visited there on Thursday, 
February 1st, 1934. 

The Third degree was exemplified and I was 
partieularlv impressed with the manner in which 
the Wardens and the Inner Guard carried out their 
part of the work. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 195 

On the evening of March 8th, 1934, I visited 
Sturgeon Falls Lodge No. 447. 

There was no degree work, so after the Rout- 
ine Business had been disposed of I had the officers 
raise to the Third degree. This was done very 
efficiently. 

Although this lodge has been very hard hit by 
reason of recent economic conditions there is still 
a splendid spirit of Masonry being displayed by the 
brethren and they are in a good condition fin- 
ancially. 

On March 9, 1934, I had the pleasure of visit- 
ing North Bay Lodge No. 617 at North Bay. 

The work of the evening was the conferring of 
the Second degree which was very ably demon- 
strated by the officers of this lodge. This lodge is 
taking a very great interest in Masonic Education. 
W. Bro. Gregor is very enthusiastic and he is ably 
supported by his officers. There was a large turn- 
out of visitors at this meeting; mostly from Nipiss- 
ing Lodge. 

On the evening of March 20, 1934, I visited 
my home lodge, Algonquin No. 536, located at 
Copper Cliff, and was accorded a hearty welcome. 

The Third degree was demonstrated by the 
regular officers assisted by the Past Masters, and 
was done in splendid form. 

A pleasant feature of the evening was a visit 
from Most Worshipful Bro. W. T. MacDonald, 
Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Arizona. 
He addressed the brethren briefly but left some 
very impressing thoughts for their consideration. 
The lodge finances are in a good condition and the 
future seems very bright. 

On April 4th, 1934, I visited officially, my 
Mother Lodge, Nickel No. 427 at Sudbury and 
received a very cordial welcome from W. Bro. 
Stett and his officers. 



196 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The work of the evening was conferring the 
Entered Apprentice degree by the officers of the 
lodge. The work was most efficient, that of the 
Junior Wardens and the Deacons is worthy of 
special mention. A splendid Masonic vSpirit exists 
in^Niekel lodge. 

I have had the pleasure of being present at 
nearly all the regular meetings during the year. 

There were two outstanding nights in Sudbury 
Masonic History during my term. 

On Tuesday, October 24th, 1933, Most Wor. 
Bros. Copus and Dargavel visited Sudbury. 

Luncheon was served at the Copper Cliff Club, 
where several members of Algonquin Lodge enter- 
tained the distinguished visitors, who were accom- 
panied by several Past Masters of Nickel Lodge. 

Nickel Lodge opened in due form at 6.00 p.m. 
and after the reception of the Grand Master, lodge 
was closed and the brethren adjourned to the base- 
ment of the Church of England where a banquet 
and speeches were the program for the evening. 

The Grand Master addressed the brethren on 
the life and character of Masons and brought out 
manv fine points, leaving many thoughts with the 
members. 

Most Wor. Bro. Dargavel also addressed the 
brethren, his subject being Masonic Education and 
Benevolence. 

Towards the close of the meeting, Most Wor. 
Bro. Copus was presented with a Monel Metal 
Gavel made from the ores of the Sudbury district 
mines. 

Another night worthy of mention was the 
Nickel Lodge Past Masters' Association Banquet 
held in the Nickel Range Hotel, Sudburv, on 
Friday, June 15th, 1934. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, VX'A 197 

The guest speaker was Rev.. Canon Shatford, 
Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Quebec. 

There were, present, about sixty Past Masters 
and Sitting Masters, hailing irom all the lodges in 
the district. This is the first time anything of 
this sort has been done in Sudbury, and I believe 
it is the intention of the Association to repeat this 
annually. 

On the evening of April 11, 1934, I had the 
pleasure of visiting Hornpayne Lodge No. 636. 

The Third degree was ably demonstrated by 
the officers of the lodge. Their work has real snap 
to it, and I believe their motto is "Perfection". 
They own their own lodge property and are free 
from debt. The future of this lodge is good. 

On the evening of June 5th, 1934, I visited 
National Lodge No. 588 at Capreol. 

The First degree was ably demonstrated by the 
officers. 

Owing to bush fires in the district the turn out 
was very small, but this was offset by the en- 
thusiasm of those present. 

This is another lodge that has been hit hard 
during the past few years through causes over 
which they have no control. 

R.W. Bro. J. W. Rawlins accompanied me on 
this visit and addressed the brethren on Masonic 
Education, which was much appreciated. 

My last official visit was to Gore Bay Lodge 
No. 472 at Gore Bay on June 6th, 1934. The 
Second degree was exemplified by the officers, and 
was done in a very able manner. The spirit of 
Masonry runs high and the prospects of Gore Bay 
Lodge are bright. 

In summing up. Most Worshipful Sir, I beg to 
state that Masonry in Nipissing District is of a 



1 i GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

high calibre. The officers everywhere are very 
enthusiastic and it was a pleasure for me to have 
the privilege which I have enjoyed during my 
term of office. 

There are seventeen lodges in this great dis- 
trict, and it is impossible for your representative to 
visit many of them more than once during the 
term. Taking Sudbury as a central point one must 
travel over 300 miles to certain lodges in the dis- 
trict, but notwithstanding this great barrier the 
uniformity of the work is amazing. 

On each of my visits I addressed the assem- 
bled brethren, and spoke also on Masonic Educa- 
tion to many of them. We are a little slow in 
getting started, but we hope to finish the race with 
the first. 

I have examined the books of each lodge and 
find all records kept properly. Most lodges are in 
very good financial condition and the future of 
most of the lodges seems very bright indeed. 

I had the privilege during my term to install 
W. Bro. W". F. Veo of Algonquin Lodge, Copper 
Cliff on January 16th, 1934 and to assist R.W. Bro 
Jas. Sharp install the officers of Espanola Lodge 
on June 23rd, 1934. 

Church Services were attended by a number of 
lodges in the district on June 24th, 1934. 

In closing may I say that I have had one of 
the greatest years of my life. I found friends 
everywhere and made many new ones. 

I am greatly indebted to the members of the 
district for the opportunity to serve them, and I 
will cherish always the memories of my year as 
District Deputy Grand Master. 

Fraternally submitted, 

C. G. ADE, 
D.D.G.M. Xipissing District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 199 



NORTH HURON DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In submitting my valedictory of the state of 
Masonry in North Huron District during 1933-34 
as viewed by your servant, I do so with a great 
degree of satisfaction. 

As a preface to this report, I cannot too highly 
voice my appreciation to the large number of 
representatives from this district who journeyed 
to St. Catharines in July 1933, electing me to the 
office of D.D.G.M. of North Huron District, and as 
a result of this honor I have endeavoured to 
develop the intellectual and fraternal aims to such 
an extent that I cannot but help to make better 
citizens of all who pass through this office. 

In accordance with Masonic rules, I asked W. 
Bro. Robert John Mann of Teeswater Lodge No. 
276 to act as my private secretary and for his 
services and advice, I am deeply indebted. 

Masonic education was the uppermost idea in 
all my visits, and as such I believe have had 
gratifying results in some lodges of the district 
while others took it as a matter of form. 

My first specific duty was the arrangement for 
the dedication of Blyth and Wingham Lodge rooms 
on September 28, 1933. These two dedications 
were concurred in bv the M.W. the Grand Master, 
G.S.W.— G.J.W.— G" Sec — G.D.O.C. — and other 
Grand Lodge officers. 

Blyth Lodge No. 303 was dedicated at 3.00 
p.m. September 28, 1933 and after the dedication 
the Grand Master was presented with a silk um- 
brella for the consideration shown for which he 



200 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

thanked them in his usual courteous way in addi- 
tion to other masonic advice. Lunch was then 
served leaving Blyth brethren very comfortably 
situated in their very attractive building. 

The dedication of Wingham Lodge No. No. 286 
was joined in by a number of Masons from Western 
Ontario, and carried out in the usual Masonic 
form. The present D.D.G.M's; W. H. Kress of 
Durham, H. C. Campbell of Port Elgin and Hugh 
Hill of Goderich in addition to many from our own 
district assisted materially by making the cere- 
mony more impressive. 

After the dedication a presentation to the 
Grand Master of a valuable set of brushes and 
replies by the Grand Master and W. M. Logan the 
Grand Secretary, the brethren, to the number of 
approximately 300 journeyed to the Armouries to do 
justice to a fitting banquet and the usual toasts 
indulged in, but particularly the Most Worshipful, 
the Grand Master's address, which was full of 
real masonic lessons. 

Lodge No. 284, St. John's Brussels on October 
3, 1933, was my first official visit where the third 
degree was exemplified in a very efficient and im- 
pressive manner by W.M. Bro. Jamieson and his 
officers assisted by several P.M's. 

The condition of Masonry in Brussels Lodge 
is well worthy of imitation supported as it is by 
P.D.D.G.M Bro. Wilton and several energetic 
P.M's, and the welcome accorded their guests is 
well worthy of recognition. 

Blair Lodge No. 314, Palmerston was visited 
on Friday, October 13, 1933, by your servant when 
three brethren were passed by W.M. Bro. Moore 
and his degree team with the accuracy and pre- 
cision that is truly characteristic of railway em- 
ployees, and I fully appreciated being the guest of 
Blair Lodge that evening. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 201 

Blair Lodge also expect to have their lodge 
rooms dedicated on July 9, 1934, this date being 
their diamond jubilee of organization but I cannot 
have the particulars of this meeting in time for 
this report, so will leave it for the future report to 
contain. 

Fordwich Lodge No. 331, Oct. 26, 1933: On 
this date I visited this lodge and while no work was 
put on, the opening and closing in the three degrees 
by W.M. Bro. Wade left no doubt in my mind that 
the Fordwich brethren were no babies in masonry, 
and I am pleased to record their advancement in 
the line of Masonic Education. This lodge though 
few in numbers augurs well. 

Bernard Lodge No. 225, Listowel: On Fridav 
Oct. 27, 1933, W.M. Bro. S. A. McDonald and his 
officers exemplified the second degree in a very 
attractive and masonic manner, supported by en- 
thusiastic side benchers, which was favorablv com- 
mented on by the guests. 

W. Bro. Dr. J. M. McCutcheon of Toronto 
gave an address in addition to the D.D.G.M. and 
all present concurred that it was an evening well 
spent. If you will pardon me, I would say that I 
would be remiss in my appreciation were I not 
to mention the helping hand given me by P.D.D. 
G.M. Fred Vandrick during my year. 

Forest Lodge No. 162, Wroxeter, Oct. 30, 1933. 
The First degree which was received by the candi- 
date, showed that such persons as P. D.D.G.M. 
Thos Brown had laid the foundation for Wroxeter 
Lodge long ago. W.M. Bro. Munro takes his work 
seriously and with the support given him Wjoxeter 
lodge should arrive at a satisfactory goal. 

Blyth Lodge No. 303, April 3rd, 1934. At this 
meeting the First degree was given by W.M. Bro. 
Brown and although it was the first opportunity 
the officers had of presenting a degree, they were 
worthy of commendation, coupled with the fact 



202 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

that the weather was disagreeable and the numbers 
present few. The Blyth brethren are enjoying 
their renovated rooms. 

Wingham Lodge No. 286 May 1st, 1934. While 
at this meeting no work was anticipated other 
than opening and closing in the three degrees, the 
officers do not appear to get the support from the 
members in general that you would expect, and 
therefore lack what is requisite in such splendid 
quarters. Their rooms being all that can be de- 
sired. 

Since my visit I have been assured, that more 
interest is to be taken in the future, and I will 
look forward to a realization of this maxim. 

Northern Light Lodge No. 93, Kincardine, 
May 2nd, 1934. The weather on this occasion was 
not congenial but the spirit and co-operation more 
than counter-balanced this impediment. The Third 
degree was well presented by W.M. Bro. McDonald 
and his team. The candidate was particularly 
well prepared. The motherly feeling that Kin- 
cardine lodge has over Tiverton Lodge is very 
conspicuous and to be admired. Masonry in 
Kincardine is instructive and may well be copied 
by others. 

Bruce Lodge Xo. 341 Tiverton, May 15th, 
1934. The degree work was satisfactory, but was 
surpassed by their hospitality, and under leader- 
ship like W.M. Bro. McDougal cannot help but 
attract, supported as they are by Kincardine 
Lodge, but they co-operate as occasions avail 
themselves. 

Old Light Lodge Xo. 184, Lucknow, May 24th, 
1934. This lodge has become historic in this 
district on account of their forbears and the presen- 
tation of the second degree bespoke that record 
and need no further commendation to W.M. Bro. 
McGee and his assistants. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 203 

Teeswater Lodge No. 276 May 31st, 1934. 
The Second degree was presented in a reputable 
manner. Complimentary remarks to W.M, Bro. 
McBurney and his officers would not be in good 
taste as it is my mother lodge, but the predom- 
inance of outside guests from other lodges and 
other districts totalling 140 including 15 Grand 
Lodge Officers in a room where the thermometer 
registered over 100 degrees was not to be over- 
looked. In the banqueting room, more congenial 
quarters were enjoyed where addresses were list- 
ened to from R.W. Bro. Gregorv of Stratford, 
W. Bro. Smith of Listowel, V.W. Bro. Holmes 
of St. Catharines, R.W. Bro. Hugh Hill of Goderich 
and others. 



In passing I must express my appreciation of 
the loyalty and co-operation given me by a ma- 
jority of the Past Masters of my mother lodge 
during my visits and trust that more satisfactory 
rooms may be enjoyed by the brethren in the not 
far future. 



Hullet Lodge No. 568, Londesborough, June 
5th, 1934. This is a small lodge in numbers, but a 
very potent factor in Masonry. Proof of same 
being in the fact that there were two brethren 
present who were physically unable to partake in the 
work. R.W. Bro. Hugh Hill of Goderich was 
present on this occasion and for such I am very 
grateful. 

The aforesaid is a brief summary of opinions 
of Masonry in North Huron but I do not hesitate 
to state that Masonry is planting its foot-prints 
firmer and deeper in the right direction. 

I hasten to thank the district in general for 
the consideration of my endeavors and the advance- 
ment made in Masonic Education. 

Might I suggest that: 



204 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

1. In a redistribution of the boundaries of 
Huron-Bruce the Geographical boundaries be con- 
sidered. 

2. That the age limit for initiation be raised 
from 21 to 25 or more. 

3. That the initiation fee be raised from $20. 
to $40.00. 

4. That secretaries of lodges be Past Masters. 

In conclusion, words fail to express my appre- 
ciation of the honor of representing the M.W. the 
Grand Master during 1933-34 and I bespeak for 
my successor the same co-operation and support 
which made the year an attractive mile-stone in 
my career.

ONTARIO DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honor to submit herewith my report 
as D.D.G.M. of Ontario District for the vear 
1933-34. 

I would first like to voice my appreciation to 
the brethren of the district for the honor they con- 
ferred on me by electing me as the representative 
of the Grand Master in this district, and for the 
co-operation and support they have given me on 
every occasion. 

W. Bro. Thos. Hardcastle most kindly agreed 
to act as District Secretary and carried out the 
duties in a most efficient manner, and I cannot 
speak too highly of his unfailing loyalty and 
support. 

W. Bro. Rev. W. P. Woodger accepted the 
office of District Chaplain and together with W. 
Bro. Hardcastle accompanied me on practically 
every visit. 

We visited every lodge in the district officially, 
and most of them several times informally. 

Degree work was seen in all the lodges, if not 
on the official visit, at other times, and I am very 
pleased to report that they are all doing very 
excellent work, and that the general spirit is to 
conform entirely with the work as laid down by 
Grand Lodge. 

The loyalty of all the lodges is unquestioned 
and much progress is being made in a better un- 
derstanding of the tenets of Masonry. 



206 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The lodges generally are enjoying a greater 
prosperity as evidenced by candidates coming 
forward, and I have been much impressed by the 
fine quality of the new brethren. 

The visit of the Grand Master to the district 
at Oshawa was an inspiration to all of us, and on 
behalf of the district I would like to say how much 
we appreciated it and the good results it has already 
had. 

It has been a very happy year for us in the 
district. Harmony has prevailed in all lodges. 
Attendance has improved, and a larger interest is 
being taken in things Masonic. 

Just here I would quote the district secretary, 
who says, "I wish to commend the work and 
courtesy of the secretaries and treasurers of the 
lodges of Ontario district. I firmly believe that as 
long as this part of the lodge work is carried on so 
efficiently, Masonry is bound to progress." Also the 
district chaplain has this to say, "Every meeting 
we attended was of a high order. Never once was 
anvthing said or done that was not conducive 
to the highest ends. The addresses of the district 
deputv were always new, clear, concise, and in- 
spiring. It was a real pleasure to be associated 
with him, and also with the district secretary." 

Most of the lodges have done much inter- 
visiting, both in the district and outside. This is 
to be commended. 

To those many brethren who have accom- 
panied me on my visits, and to those who have so 
consistently supported me by visiting other lodges, 
I return my grateful thanks. 

Fraternally submitted, 

\Y. J. YOUDEN,

TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1934 207 

OTTAWA DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The first visit of my official year was to Enter- 
prise Lodge No. 516, Beachburg, on Monday, 
October 2nd. I appreciated very much the good 
attendance of brethren from Ottawa and the sur- 
rounding district to welcome me on my initiation 
as D.D.G.M. The Entered Apprentice degree was 
exemplified most satisfactorily. The officers of 
this lodge have kept their work well in hand, even 
though there have been few candidates. The 
Masonic fellowship so characteristic of the Beach- 
burg brethren was enjoyed by all. 

St. John's Lodge No. 63, Carleton Place, 
Wednesday, October 11th, was my second visit. 
The work was the First degree and was conferred 
by the officers in a splendid manner. Carleton 
Place again welcomed a large number of brethren 
from Ottawa and the surrounding district. 

Chaudiere Lodge No. 264, Ottawa, Tuesday, 
October 24th This was my first official visit in 
Ottawa and, as was anticipated, a large number of 
brethren attended. The weather on this occasion 
was much against the brethren from the surround- 
ing district getting to the city, but there were, 
however, a good number present. The work was 
the First degree and the officers of Chaudiere 
Lodge have once again lived up to their reputation. 

My fourth visit was to Ashlar Lodge No. 564, 
Ottawa, Friday, November 3rd. There was an 
exceptionally large number of visiting brethren out 
on this occasion, and the work of initiation was 
carried out in a most pleasing manner. The 
candidate on this occasion was most receptive. 



208 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Dalhousie Lodge No. 52, Ottawa was the 
occasion of my fifth visit on Tuesday, November 
7th. The First degree was conferred most satis- 
factorily with a very large crowd of brethren 
attending. This was recognized by the Ottawa 
Masons as Armistice night and the entertainment 
was along this line. I was accompanied by many 
Grand Lodge officers of our own district, as well 
as our sister jurisdiction in Quebec. 

My sixth visit was to Lodge of Fidelity, No. 
231, Ottawa, on Tuesday, November 21st. The 
weather on this occasion was very bad and the 
roads in almost an impassable condition. This 
prohibited a large attendance from the outside 
district, although the attendance from the city 
brethren was very satisfactory. W. Bro. Morgan 
and officers exemplified the First degree and re- 
ceived congratulations on their work. 

My next visit to an outside lodge was Renfrew, 
No. 122, Renfrew, Monday, December 4th. As 
there was no candidate, the lodge was opened and 
closed in the three degrees. W. Bro. Murphy 
occupied the chair and his charming manner and 
capable spirit was much in evidence. It is most 
gratifying to meet a man of Dr. Murphy's years 
who still maintains an active place in Masonry. 
A number of brethren from the Ottawa district 
accompanied me on my visit. 

On Thursday, December 7th, I visited St 
Andrew's Lodge, No. 560, Ottawa. The atmosphere 
of the heather and the pipes still pervades this 
lodge. W. Bro. Henderson and officers deserve 
credit for their work, which was a First degree 
conferred with a large crowd attending. The 
entertainment at the Fourth Degree was much in 
keeping with the Scotch inclinations of the brethren. 

My first visit of the New Year was to The 
Builders Lodge No. 177, Ottawa, Friday, January 
12th. The First degree was conferred on the son of 
the Master, W. Bro. Mansell. A goodly number of 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 209 

Grand Lodge officers and visiting brethren were 
present. The entertainment was very impressive, 
when a choir of small daughters of the brethren 
gave evidence of much training. 

On Wednesday, February 7th, I visited De- 
fenders Lodge, No. 590, Ottawa. The w r ork was 
very well done and considering the condition of the 
weather, the attendance was all that could be 
expected. 

My next visit was to Sidney Albert Luke 
Lodge, No. 558, Ottawa, Wednesday, February 
14th. The work of the evening was the First 
degree and was conferred on Bro. Profit, who was a 
very promising candidate. As is the usual custom, 
the Volume of the Sacred Law upon which he was 
obligated was presented to the candidate by the 
lodge. This duty was performed by Bro. Stanley 
Metcalfe. Anyone w T ho enjoyed this ceremony will 
long remember Bro. Metcalfe's address to the 
candidate. The music of the evening was very 
impressive, and the solo by Dr. Xesbitt is worthy 
of comment. An address by Mr. Meyers, M.P. 
for P.E.L, was given. Mr. Meyers is from the 
home province of the Worshipful Master. 

My next official visit was to Prince of Wales 
Lodge Xo. 371, Ottawa, Friday, February 23rd. 
The work was the First degree. The officers of 
this lodge had their work well prepared and the 
junior officers showed marked attention. The 
Past Masters of this lodge give good support in all 
the undertakings, and much credit is due to them 
for the condition of the lodge. 

My first visit of the New Year to an outside 
lodge was Pembroke, Xo. 128, Pembroke, Thurs- 
day, March 1st. The snow having blocked the 
roads, the attendance was smaller than might 
have been the case. The candidate for the evening, 
being a member of the R.C.M.P., was called on 
duty at the last minute and the work was exempli- 



210 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

fied by a member of the lodge acting as candidate. 
The officers showed skill in this exemplification. 

My next visit was Rideau Lodge No. 595, 
Ottawa, on Thursday, March 8th. One of the 
largest crowds of the year was in attendance at 
Rideau Lodge on this occasion. The brother of 
the D.D.G.M. was initiated. W. Bro. Bateman 
and his officers are to be congratulated on their 
work and their entertainment on this occasion. 

On Friday, March 23rd, I visited Acacia 

Lodge, No. 561, Westboro. The work was well 

done in the First degree and the Master, as well 

as the junior officers, displayed a real interest in 
their work. 

Mississippi Lodge No. 147, Almonte, Friday, 
April 6th, was my next visit. There being no 
candidate, the work of the First Degree was 
exemplified, one of the brethren acting. The work 
was exceptionally well done and the junior warden 
received congratulations on his lecture. There 
were a number of brethren accompanied me from 
Ottawa, but again the condition of the roads kept 
the attendance low. 

Civil Service Lodge, No. 148, Ottawa, Tuesday 
April 10th, was the occasion of my official visit. 
There was a good attendance of Grand Lodge 
officers and visitors when the First degree was 
conferred on Bro. Butchers of the R.C.M.P. 
R.W. Bro. Hodgins of Ottawa district, Quebec, 
accompanied me and was received in an official 
manner. 

My next visit was Ionic Lodge, No. 526, 
Westboro, Wednesday, April 11th. There was a 
large attendance on this occasion and the work of 
the First degree was done in a most commendable 
manner by the officers of Ionic. Many Grand 
Lodge officers, including R.W. Bro. Hodgins, 
again accompanied me. The brethren of this lodge 
again demonstrated their abilitv to entertain in 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 211 

real Masonic fashion, and the evening was a great 
success. 

Doric Lodge No. 58, Ottawa, on Thursday, 
April 19th, was my last official visit to an Ottawa 
lodge, and the evening was marked as a very 
successful one. The son of the Worshipful Master, 
who is a student in medicine, Toronto University, 
was initiated into Masonry. The lecture was one 
long to be remembered. 

My visit to Goodwood Lodge, No. 159, Rich- 
mond, on Tuesday, April 24th was attended by 
many Ottawa brethren and brethren from the sur- 
rounding district. There was no candidate for this 
evening, but the officers exemplified the work in the 
First degree. This historical old lodge maintains 
a good standard of efficiency. 

My next visit to Corinthian Lodge No. 476, 
North Gower, on Friday, April 27th, was perhaps 
one of the most important visits of the year, this 
being my home lodge. The brethren of Ottawa 
and surrounding district expressed their loyalty to 
me by turning out in large numbers, and a most 
enjoyable evening was spent on this occasion. 
The brethren of Ottawa and Westboro presented 
the D.D.G.M. with a large photograph of the 
District Deputy, together with the ruling Masters 
of Ottawa and Westboro. The expressions of 
friendship which were exchanged on this occasion 
will long serve to bind together in close fraternity 
the brethren of Corinthian Lodge and the brethren 
of the surrounding district. The work was a 
Second Degree and was conferred on a nephew, 
Bro. Stanley Greer, of the D.D.G.M. Much 
appreciation was expressed by the brethren of 
Corinthian on the granting of dispensation by 
Grand Lodge to permit this meeting to be held in 
the Community Hall, where the brethren were 
comfortably accommodated. 

Cobden Lodge No. 459, Cobden, Tuesday, 
May 8th, was the occasion of mv next visit, and 



212 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the brethren exemplified the First degree in a com- 
mendable manner, there being no candidate. 

On Monday May 14th, I visited Madawaska 
Lodge No. 196 Arnprior, accompanied by a good 
number of Ottawa brethren, when the work was 
exceptionally well done by the officers of this lodge. 

Hazeldean Lodge No. 517, Hazeldean, Wed- 
nesday, May 23rd, was my next visit. The work 
on this occasion was well done, although there were 
several of the officers who had to be replaced on 
account of sickness. As is the usual circumstances 
a large number of Ottawa brethren, together with 
brethren of the surrounding district, visited with 
the D.D.G.M. on this evening. The officers of this 
lodge are well skilled in their work and demon- 
strate a very live and active organization. 

Carleton Lodge No. 465, Carp, Friday, May 
25th, was my next visit. The work was a Third 
degree and was exemplified in a most impressive 
manner. Several Past Masters assisted the Master 
in this, and the whole work demonstrated that the 
brethren of Carleton Lodge are interested in their 
work. The visiting brethren were greatly inter- 
ested in the furniture of this lodge, which had its 
origin in a lodge in France in the C.E.F. days. 

My next visit was to Russell Lodge, No. 479, 
Russell, on Monday, May 28th. The work was a 
First degree, there being no candidate. The junior 
officers particularly are much to be complimented 
on their work. Russell Lodge on every occasion 
entertains her visitors in royal fashion and this 
evening was no exception to the general rule. 

My last visit of the year was to Bonnechere 
Lodge No. 433, Eganville, on Monday, June 11th. 
The brethren of Eganville Lodge, under the leader- 
ship of R.W. Bro. Reeves are carrying on under 
difficult circumstances. There is a great lack of 
candidates, but the officers seem to be well skilled 
in their work. R.W. Bro. Reeves and his brethren 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 193* 21 3 

spare no time or effort to see that the D.D.G.M. 
and his delegation are given every comfort and 
accommodation during their visit to Eganville. 
This visit makes a happy climax to a strenuous 
year and makes one feel that Masonry can be made 
to mean a great deal. 

In closing may I express my appreciation to 
the brethren of the Ottawa district for conferring 
the honour of District Deputy Grand Master on 
me as a member of Corinthian Lodge. 

I trust that my work may have been as satis- 
factory to them as it has been pleasant to me. I 
pass over to my successor the reins of office with a 
feeling that Masonry has a real place in the hearts 
and lives of our brethren. 

To the brethren may I say that although the 
year has been difficult outside of Masonry I know 
that it has been productive of much progress along 
real Masonic lines. Much help has been given to 
those in need and opportunities have been given to 
exercise Masonic virtues. 

The work as exemplified in the various lodges 
was of such high order that I found it difficult to 
express myself when reporting on each separate 
lodge but would compliment the brethren collec- 
tively on their choice of officers for the respective 
lodges. 

Masonic education under the able direction of 
R.W. Bro. J. A. Dobbie has been successfully 
carried on and the brethren have had the oppor- 
tunity of listening to many instructive addresses. 
I would like to express to Dr. Dobbie, on behalf 
of the brethren, our appreciation. 

The interest in Masonry in the Ottawa district 
was demonstrated by the almost full attendance of 
the ruling Masters on each and every occasion of 
my official visit. This, together with the attend- 
ance of the Grand Lodge officers, has been a great 



214 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

source of encouragement to me. I would singularly 
like to mention my support received by the attend- 
ance of R.W. Bro. X. Hodgins, District Deputv 
Grand Master of our sister jurisdiction in Quebec. 
I would also like to thank the Worshipful Masters 
for the hospitality shown to me on other occasions 
than those of my official visits. 

The Ottawa Temple Choir has again enjoyed 
a successful year and it is with regret that Bro. 
Cyril Rick wood retired from active leadership of 
this organization. He will carry with him, how- 
ever, a sense of great satisfaction that he has 
developed such a high state of efficiency. 

One of the activities of Masonry upon which I 
would comment favourably is the exchanging of 
visits between the city and country lodges, and I 
would like to encourage this for the future. If I 
might be permitted to suggest I think a definite 
organized system of exchange might be developed. 
If this were the case each country lodge would be 
ensured of having at least one visit per year from a 
city lodge. 

The Dedication of the new lodge room of En- 
terprise Lodge No. 516, was the only occasion of 
the year on which I was called to act in an official 
capacity other than my usual official visits. This 
ceremony was performed on Wednesday, June 
27th, at 7.30 p.m. I was assisted by R.W. Bros. 
E. J. McCleerv, T. A. Dobbie, W. j". Abra, E. S. 
McPhail, W. Hooper, A. Collins, ~H. F. Hardy, 
A. Ross and J. Reeves, V.W. Bros. C. Wood, 
I. G. Metz, W. Bros. William Flav. John Ireland, 
C. W. Fraser, W. K. McGregor, S. Gilmour, G. 
Bennett, C. M. Purcell, W. Scrivens, H. Sykes, 
W. C. X. Marriott, Major Sprange and W. A. 
Kruger. The brethren of Enterprise Lodge are to 
be congratulated on their new meeting place. 

Fraternally submitted, 

M. J. SCOBIE, 
D.D.G.M. Ottawa District. 



TOROXTO, ONTARIO, 1934 215 

PETERBOROUGH DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is with great pleasure that I submit un- 
report on the condition of Masonry in the Peter- 
borough district. 

I desire first to express to the brethren of the 
district both my deep apreciation of the honor they 
have bestowed upon me in electing me to the office 
of D.D.G.M. and my gratitude for the courtesy, 
kindness and hospitality that has been shown me 
throughout the district. I also wish to express my 
thanks to the P.D.D.G.M's for the kindness and 
valuable aid given during the year and also to the 
P. Ms of my own lodge for their able assistance. 
On mv return home after being installed in office 
W. Bro. Dr. H. G. Carleton P.M. of Norwood 
Lodge very kindly offered his services as District 
Secretary. I cannot express in too high terms my 
sincere thanks to him for the work he has done and 
the sacrifice he has made to accompany me on my 
official visits. 

On May 30th this district had the pleasure of a 
visit from the M.W. Bro. F. A. Copus in Peter- 
borough. The P.M's of the district met in the 
dining hall of the lodge room at 6.30 p.m. where 
dinner was served, after which M.W. Bro. Copus 
delivered a very interesting and instructive address. 
This reception was under the auspices of the Past 
Masters' association whom I wish to thank and 
congratulate for their excellent arrangements. At 
eight o'clock the brethren adjourned to the assem- 
bly room of the Collegiate Institute when R.W. 
Bro. R. C. Blagrave introduced the Most Worship- 
ful the Grand Master to the brethren of the dis- 
trict. 



216 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

M.W. Bro. Copus delivered an inspiring ad- 
dress, the memory of which will linger in the 
minds of the brethren for a long time. At the 
close of his adress R.W. Bro. H. R. H. Kenner 
on behalf of the district presented the Grand 
Master with a silver tray as a souvenir of his visit. 

On all my official visits I impressed upon the 
brethren the wish of the Grand Master that each 
lodge would undertake the responsibility of a sys- 
tem of Masonic education. I am pleased to report 
that each lodge in the district has a strong and 
active committee. As a result the brethren are 
taking Masonry more seriously, by adding to their 
library the books recommended by the Grand 
Lodge Committee on Masonic Education. 

On the whole we have had a very satisfactory 
year. All the lodges in the district are in a most 
flourishing condition with the exception of Havelock 
Lodge which was visited by fire about February 
1st, of this year. Everything was burned even to the 
warrant. The books were saved bv the Secretary 
W. Bro. C. Denike. The loss was about $10, 000. (W; 
some insurance was carried but not sufficient to 
begin to cover the loss. The brethren have been 
holding their meetings in the Orange Hall and 
will continue to do so until the new lodge room is 
built which it is expected will be completed in 
the near future. 

The books and records of each lodge were care- 
fully examined and in every instance showed effici- 
ent and painstaking officers. The attendance at 
the different lodges was on the whole good. The 
work done was much above the average. If there 
is any feature which I could not approve of it was 
the bringing in of the Past Masters to assist in 
the work, when I made my official visit. I believe 
that is one night when the regular officers should 
do the work. 

My first official visit was to Golden Rule 
Lodge at Campbellford on October 3rd, 1933. Two 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 217 

Fellowcraft degrees were conferred in a most 
efficient manner: W. Bro. Benor and his officers 
did exceptionally well R.W. Bro. Bonnycastle the 
secretary is a tower of strength in this lodge. 

It was indeed a great pleasure to visit Keene 
Lodge on Nov. 16th, 1933. I was received by the 
officers and brethren showing me every courtesv 
and friendship. The brethren of Keene Lodge 
accompanied me in large numbers on many of my 
official visits which I appreciated very much. 
W. Bro. Taylor and his officers conferred the 
second degree and the work was exceptionally well 
done. I was impressed by the attendance of a 
number of fine young men which augurs well for 
the future of Keene Lodge. 

On November 17th, 1933 I inspected Corin- 
thian Lodge, Peterborough. This is a grand old 
lodge with a splendid record. The third degree was 
conferred in a most impressive manner, W. Bro. 
Dr. Buchanan having a splendid grip of the work 
with a good staff of officers. The musical ritual 
added greatlv to the success of the work. R.W. 
Bro. H. R.'H. Kenner and R.W. Bro. W. R. 
Morris continue to take a deep interest in the work 
of the lodge. The books are kept in excellent 
condition by W. Bro. R. F. Downey. 

My next official visit was Havelock Lodge 
on December 29th, 1933: another pleasant evening 
was spent. I witnessed the installing of the Wor- 
shipful Master and his officers by W. Bro. Robert 
Anderson who performed the ceremony in a very 
creditable manner. The books and records were 
well kept by W. Bro. A. C. Denike. The attend- 
ance was very good. R.W. Bro. T. Lancaster 
continues to take a deep interest in the work 
along with the many P.M's which this lodge 
possesses. 

On March 2nd, 1934 I inspected Peterborough 
Lodge. The weather was bad and so were the 
roads, nevertheless the brethren turned out well. 



218 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The first degree was conferred by W. Master 
James Baird, his officers and Past Masters in an 
excellent manner. The floor work by the Wardens 
and Deacons was done perfectly. A splendid spirit 
existed between officers and members. The Past 
Masters continue to take a deep interest. Needless 
to say the books are models of neatness and effici- 
ency. The secretary, R.W. Bro. J. Comstock is a 
tower of strength to this lodge. 

Royal Arthur Lodge Peterborough. I visited 
this lodge on March oth, 1934. Another pleasant 
evening was spent. R.W. Bro. Robt. McCamus 
and about a dozen more of the brethren of Keene 
Lodge were present. The first degree was conferred 
by Worshipful Master J. A. Dewart and his 
officers and very ably assisted by the Past Masters 
in which this lodge is rich. The books were in 
splendid condition due to the very efficient secre- 
tary, W. Bro. G. W. Haley. 

Hastings Lodge No. 633. I made my official 
visit to Hastings March 24th, 1934. This is the 
youngest lodge of the district and it is a pleasure 
to report that it is forging ahead. The work of 
the evening was the conferring of the first degree 
which was done in a very capable manner by the 
Worshipful Master Bro. H. J. Fife and his officers. 
The floor work was equal to any in the district. 
The books and records of the lodge were a model 
of neatness under the management of the secre- 
tary W. Bro. C. B. Plant. R.W. Bro. Walter M. 
Fowlds and the Past Masters generally are a tower 
of strength in this lodge. 

Percy Lodge, Warkworth, was inspected May 
2nd, 1934. There was a good attendance of mem- 
bers as well as visiting brethren from Keene and 
Norwood. The work of the evening was the con- 
ferring of the first degree by the Worshipful Master 
Bro. 0. B. Phillips assisted by his officers and Past 
Masters. Percy Lodge is blessed with a number 
Past Masters who continue to take an active in- 
terest. The work was well done. The books and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, \9?A 219 

records in excellent condition. Percy Lodge is to 
be congratulated in having such a splendid Ma- 
sonic Temple. The furnishing and everything in 
connection are of the finest in the district. R.W. 
Bro. B. B. Buchanan continues to take a deep 
interest in the affairs of the lodge. 

J. B. Hall Lodge, Millbrook. My official visit 
to this lodge on May 10th, 1934. There was a 
large attendance of the members present and visit- 
ors from Royal Arthur Lodge and Keene, Lindsay 
and Cobourg. I believe there were representatives 
from several other lodges which I am unable to 
name. The work of the evening was the con- 
ferring of the third degree which was done in fine 
style by W. Bro. J. W. Hanbridge and his officers. 
The floor work was excellent; the books were 
neatly kept by the secretary, R.W. Bro. Thorn- 
dyke and R.W. Bro. A. Jemison are a tower of 
strength to this lodge. 

Norwood Lodge Norwood. I visited my 
mother lodge May 14th, 1934 and received a very 
cordial reception. The W. Master W. Bro. Wm. 
Thompson and officers exemplified the first degree 
in very good form. The W. Master and officers 
have a good grip of the work and I am pleased to 
be able to give such a good report of my home 
lodge. The attendance was large. We were 
pleased to have R.W. Bro. Fowlds and a number of 
Hastings brethren also the Worshipful Master and 
a number of brethren from Keene Lodge. The 
books of the lodge are in good hands and well 
looked after by W. Bro. J. F. Pearce. 

Clementi Lodge, Lakefield. I visited Clementi 
Lodge June 5th, 1934 and received a very warm 
welcome. Considering the extreme heat the breth- 
ren turned out well and while there was no work, 
the W. M., W. Bro. Chas. H. Hunter who opened 
and closed the lodges in the three degrees perfectly 
and his ruling of this lodge proved to me beyond 
doubt that he knew his work well. The same can 
be said for the officers. 1 had the pleasure of 



220 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

listening to an examination of the work in the 
third degree given by the last candidate which was 
word perfect. 

Harmony and good feeling exists in the lodge 
and we spent a very pleasant evening. The books 
of the lodge are well and neatly kept by the very 
efficient secretary. The W. Master of Keene 
Lodge and a number of his officers and members 
were present. R.W. Bro. Fraser a pioneer of 
Masonry in this district was present and still 
takes a keen interest in the work of the lodge. 

In conclusion let me say that the warmth of 
the welcome I received from all the lodges left 
nothing to be desired. The kindnesses that were 
shown me I hope never to forget. My frailties 
and mistakes I hope you will not long remember. 
For in the greatest year of my Masonic experience, 
which is fast drawing to a close I put my best 
efforts and I want to bespeak for my successor 
the same cordial and kind treatment that was 
accorded me. 

All of which is fraternally submitted, 
EDWIN C. SQUIRE.

PRINCE EDWARD DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honor to submit this report of my 
Proceedings as D.D.G.M. and of the State of 
Masonry within Prince Edward District. 

Before proceeding with my report I wish to 
express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the 
brethren of Prince Edward District for the honor 
conferred upon me in selecting me to the high and 
important office of D.D.G.M. Unquestionably this 
has been the greatest Masonic year of my life and 
I sincerely hope and trust that my activities as 
D.D.G.M. have met with the approval of my 
brethren. 

My first visit and official act was to appoint 
W. Bro. W. E. Scott District Secretary and Bro. 
Rev. Scott, District Chaplain, and I wish to 
express my appreciation to these brethren for the 
very loyal support they have given me during my 
term of office. 

My first visit was to Madoc Lodge on August 
26th., this visit was unofficial and was in the 
form of Hydro night, the degree being conferred 
by Hydro officials. The Hon. J. R. Cooke being 
the speaker of the evening. 

On September 26th I had the pleasure of 
assisting at the laying of the corner stone of the 
Anglican Church at Bonar Law this ceremony be- 
ing performed by Grand Lodge offices. 

My first official visit was to Consecon Lodge 
there being no degree to confer the officers opened 
and closed the lodge in the three degrees in a very 
creditable manner. 



222 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On October 2nd I made my official visit to 
Bancroft Lodge at this meeting the second degree 
was conferred, and it was a great inspiration for 
me to see this degree put on in such a creditable 
manner. Bancroft Lodge should be congratulated 
on their very fine lodge room, having an abundance 
of room to confer degrees even in the face of large 
crowds. W. Bro. Churcher has a very fine set of 
books and unquestionably is a valuable asset to 
Masonry in the northern district. 

October 3rd was my official visit to Craig 
Lodge, and not only was it my official visit but it 
was the celebration of their Fiftieth anniversary. 
I was very ably introduced into the lodge by its 
founder R.W. Bro. Craig, who although many 
years have passed since its inception is still an 
enthusiastic Mason and very worthy of being its 
founder being also the proud possessor of the past 
masters jewel of fifty years a Past Master. Craig 
Lodge was indeed fortunate in having W. Bro. 
Van Vlack as their master for their anniversary and 
although a Mason for three years he carried on the 
work in a very dignified manner. 

On Tuesday, October 13th I made my official 
visit to Tweed Lodge Xo. 239 and while they have 
been very short of candidates during the past 
year they conferred the second degree in such a 
manner thus demonstrating their readiness for 
immediate material 

Franck Lodge No 127 was my next official 
visit the First degree was conferred with the 
greatest sincerity and precision and possibly in no 
place in the district has there been shown a greater 
amount of enthusiasm or a greater amount of 
fraternal spirit for a small lodge than that shown 
by Franck lodge. 

I made my official visit to Stirling Lodge No. 
69 on Thursday, October 19th, and although a very 
stormy night I was met with a tremendous crowd, 
and an abundance of enthusiasm. It was very 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 223 

gratifying for me to see the only son of a P.D.D. 
G.M. initiated into Masonry and return at a 
later date to see him not only receive his Master 
Mason's degree but his Master Mason's apron. 
In W. Bro. Carleton, Stirling Lodge has a wonder- 
ful secretary possessing as he does the finest set of 
books in the district. 

On Monday, October 30th. I made my official 
visit to Lake Lodge No. 215 and was again greeted 
by a very large turnout. Lake Lodge have been 
very unfortunate from a candidate standpoint 
but I am very pleased to report that they like 
several others in the district are now enjoying 
prospects for a brighter future. 

United Lodge No. 29 was visited officially on 
Tuesday, November 7th. The first degree was con- 
ferred in a very dignified manner being accom- 
panied as it was by a very fine choir, United Lodge 
should be congratulated on its very fine lodge 
rooms including the club room. United Lodge is 
one of the oldest lodges in Prince Edward District 
and have on the walls of their lodge many photos 
of the brethren of old, who were largely instru- 
mental in bringing Masonry to the high plane it 
holds in the world to-day. 

Star-in-the-East No. 164 Wellington was my 
next official visit and I was greeted by one of the 
largest crowds in their history. The third degree 
was conferred by W. Bro. Tice and his officers 
ably assisted by many Past Masters in a very sat- 
isfactory manner and left no doubt in the minds of 
the vast gathering present of the high standard 
of work put on by this lodge. It was my pleasure 
to return at a later date for a fraternal visit from 
Consecon Lodge No. 50, and they once again 
demonstrated their ability to not only confer 
degree work but to entertain in a truly Masonic 
spirit. 

On Wednesday, December 6th, I made my 
official visit to Moira Lodge No. 11, and was given 



224 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

a very warm reception. In the absence of W. Bro. 
Ford I was very warmly received by W. Bro. 
Monty Barlow I. P.M. and in W. Bro. Barlow I 
found one of the most capable officers during my 
term of office. Moira lodge is the oldest lodge in 
the district and can truly be called the mother 
lodge for this district. Their work is of the highest 
order and is an inspiration to any Mason whether 
he is a visitor or otherwise. In V.W. Bro. Dul- 
mage Moira Lodge has one of the greatest secre- 
tary's in this district and may the Great Architect 
of the Universe be pleased to spare him for many 
years to come. 

Tuesday, March 13. was my official visit to 
Trenton Lodge No. 38, and was introduced to the 
brethren by R.W. Bro. McClung, P.D.D.G.M. 
Trenton Lodge have the finest Masonic Temple in 
Eastern Ontario, and should be highly congratulated 
not only on their temple but on their fine financial 
standing. W. Bro. Pursy and his officers were par- 
ticularly well balanced and gave a very fine display of 
degree work. I returned at a later date for the Fra- 
ternal visit of Eureka Lodge of Belleville and we were 
again entertained very royally by the brethren of 
Trenton Lodge. 

Eureka Lodge No. 238 was visited on March 14, 
and the same high standard of work which is so par- 
ticularly prevalent in the Belleville Lodges was again 
demonstrated. 

I was very ably introduced by R.W. Bro. J. O. 
Herity P.D.D.G.M., this was of particular pleasure to 
me as I was serving as Worshipful Master of my 
Mother Lodge when R.W. Bro. Herity represented 
the district. In W. Bro. Edgecombe Eureka Lodge 
has a very capable Master and is ably supported by 
his officers, particularly his secretary, V.W. Bro. L. E. 
Walmsley. 

On April 5th I made my official visit to the 
Belleville Lodge No. 123; W. Bro. Crosby and his 
officers conferred the third degree in an excellent 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 225 

manner being ably supported by his Past Masters. 
The secret work was beautifully given by R.W. Bro. 
Clarke, and unquestionably will leave a lasting im- 
pression on the candidate. This was my last official 
visit to the various Belleville Lodges and I received 
the same glad hand of fellowship that had been ex- 
tended to me in the other two lodges. 

Monday, April 16th was my official visit to 
Marmora Lodge No. 222. Marmora Lodge are to be 
congratulated on their lodge room being one of the 
finest for a small lodge in the district. W. Bro. Pack 
and his officers are very capable and are very proud of 
their lodge. In R.W. Bro. Buskard they have a very 
fine secretary and under his guidance Marmora 
Lodge should flourish. 

My official visit to Madoc Lodge was made on 
Tuesday, April 24th and we were favoured with a 
great turnout from the surrounding district. Madoc 
Lodge have always been noted for its warm hospitality 
and there was no exception to the rule on this occasion. 
W. Bro. Comerford and his officers are well skilled 
and uphold the dignity of this old lodge. 

The Grand Finale of my official visits was made 
to my Mother Lodge on April 26th. It was my plea- 
sure to be greeted by one of the largest turnouts in the 
history of Prince Edward Lodge. I was introduced 
into the lodge by V.W. Bro. E. W. Case one of the 
many Past Masters of my Mother Lodge who have 
been such an inspiration to me during my term of 
office. To them I owe a debt of gratitude, of which I 
shall never be able to repay and my only wish is that 
my efforts have been such as to sustain the dignity 
of Prince Edward Lodge of which we are so proud. 

And so my year is ended. May our service to the 
Craft be such that Masonry will continue to stand for 
all that is high in thought, word, and action, and that 
it may attain a higher plane of usefulness than ever 
before and that, we may all work together with such 
love and unity that greater will be her benedictions 
for the future. 



220 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I have found it one of my greatest pleasures in 
life to work in the district and have endeavoured to 
discharge the duties appertaining to this exalted 
office zealously and to the best of my ability, and so 
prove worthy of that honour. I hope I have with 
honour to the Craft and credit to myself wherein I 
have failed or fallen short may the broad mantle of 
charity be spread. 

The ties of friendship which I have formed during 
the past year I shall always cherish remembering that 
true happiness consists not in the multitude of friends 
but in their worthwhile choice. It is my earnest 
desire that these friendships will live on in the years 
to come and that any time I can be of assistance may 
I be privileged to serve. 

May I bespeak for my successor the same 
courteous Masonic kindness which has always been 
so freely shown to me. 

Sincerely and fraternally submitted, 

J. C. COOPER, 
D.D.G.M. Prince Edward District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 227 

SARNIA DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipfui the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honour to present herewith mv 
report on the condition of Masonrv in Sarnia 
District for the Masonic Year, 1933-34. 

First, however, I must take this opportunity- 
of expressing to my brethren of the district, mv 
appreciation of the high honour they have con- 
ferred on me, that of representative of the Most 
Worshipful the Grand Master; and also let me 
assure you, Most Worshipful Sir, of the high 
esteem and regard in which you are heid, through- 
out Sarnia Masonic District, as evidenced by the 
warm Masonic reception accorded me, as your 
representative. 

My first official act was the appointing of 
W. Bro. J. Laverne Williams, of Petrolia Lodge No. 
194, as District Secretary. He has performed his 
duties in a highly creditable manner and assisted 
me very materially, making practically all visits 
with me throughout the district. He took a great 
interest in looking over the books of the secretaries 
of the various lodges, and reports that the lodges 
all have very efficient secretaries and the books are 
well kept. 

I also had great pleasure in appointing Bro. 
Rev. J. D. Bannatyne, of Leopold Lodge No. 397, 
Brigden, as District Chaplain. Bro. Bannatyne 
assisted us very materially when able to visit with 
us. 

The outstanding event in Sarnia District during 
the past year was the reception tendered to our 
Grand Master, which was held in Victoria Hall, 
Petrolia, on Nov. 17th, 1933. 



228 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Almost 400 Masons and their ladies of the 
district were present to welcome Most Worshipiu: 
Bro. Frank A. Copus. Although the weather and 
roads were very much against the success of the 
evening, most of the lodges were represented. The 
guest speakers were RAY. Bro. J. Birnie Smith o< 
London, and Most W. Bro. Frank A. Copus, of 
Stratford. The thanks of the district is extended 
to the Masters, Officers and Members of Washing- 
ton Lodge No. 260 and Petrolia Lodge No. 194 
in making this event a great success. 

The Most Wor. Grand Master's address was 
something that will be long remembered by the 
members of Sarnia District, and was often spoken 
of during our visits in the district. 

I visited each lodge officially during the year. 

At all these visits the receptions were very 
warm and cordial, the work being done in an ex- 
cellent manner and everything very uniform. The 
Past Masters and members of the various lodges 
are to be congratulated in their selection of officers, 
as I found all Masters, Wardens and Junior 
Officers well skilled in the work of the Order. 

On the occasion of our visit to Arkona Lodge, 
Bro. W. J. Taylor, a member of No. 8 Lodge of 
Journeymen, Edinburgh, Scotland, presented Ar- 
kona lodge with a History of his Mother Lodge 
No. 8, which dated back to 1707. Our brother 
gave a synopsis of the history of his lodge, and the 
manner in which it was given was very significant. 

I might say that Bro. Taylor served with the 
British Forces during the Great War and had a 
badge given him as a Charter Member of Lodge 
of Instruction, Cologne, Germany (which never 
received a charter, but worked under sanction of 
Honor and Generosity Lodge No. 165, London, 
England). 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1034 220 

On March 14, 1934, on our visit to our Home 
Lodge, Petrolia, No. 194, we had a surprise visit 
from R.W. Bro. Lloyd E. Crewe, D.D.G.M. of 
Chatham District, accompanied by W. Bro. R. R. 
Dusten, President of Past Masters' Association of 
Chatham District, and a number of others, which 
added greatly to the evening's program. 

On Dec. 6, 1933, I had the pleasure, along 
with some of the brethren of Petrolia Lodge, of 
visiting Victory Lodge, Chatham, when a number 
of Past Masters of Chatham District conferred the 
Master Mason's Degree. Splendid Fraternal spirit 
exists in Chatham District. 



On April 3rd, at our visit to Victoria Lodge 
Bo. 56, Sarnia, W. Bro. Shirley Willoughby, a 
Past Master of Victoria Lodge, presented the First 
Seal of Victoria Lodge, Port Sarnia, back to the 
Lodge. During the fall of 1933, W. Bro. Will- 
oughby's son, when digging in the garden, turned 
up the old seal, which is in a fine state of pre- 
servation. 

At all our visits we stressed Masonic Educa- 
tion, and tried to impress upon the brethren that 
while our work of instruction can be given very 
impressively and word perfect, yet our lives may be 
speaking so loudly that our young members do not 
hear what we say. 

And Most Worshipful Sir and brethren, as this 
brings me to the close of my office, I wish to thank 
the members of Sarnia District for the great honour 
they have done me. I also desire to thank you for 
the assistance given me, and for the leniency you 
have exercised towards me wherein I have failed 
to come up to the standard of one fully qualified 
to discharge the duties of the position I have so 
feebly been able to fulfil, and I sincerely hope my 
successor will receive the same hearty support. 



230 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

In conclusion, let me say to you that my great 
aim in the future will be to advance the interests 
of the Craft no matter what ever I may be called 
upon to perform, and that I will endeavour more 
strenuously than ever to seek out and bring into 
this ancient Order men who are "just and up- 
right" and whose quest is goodness rather than 
Gold. 

Fraternally submitted, 

J. R. STEADMAN, 
D.D.G.M. Sarnia District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 ^31 

SOUTH HURON DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honor to submit for your consider- 
ation this, my report on the condition of Masonry 
in South Huron District. 

My first desire is to express my appreciation of 
the honor of representing in (his Mother District) 
the M.W. the Grand Master, and to formally 
repeat my thanks to the brethren of this district for 
electing me to that important position. I also wish 
to thank those who so kindly accompanied me on 
my official visits. I am especially grateful to 
those who preceded me in this position, for their 
kindly assistance and attendance at many of the 
meetings, which has, I believe, been of great 
benefit in strengthening the ties of Masonic Broth- 
erhood, throughout the District of South Huron. 

Shortly after my election, I arranged to have 
an old Fashioned Basket Picnic, to which was in- 
vited the members of Maitland Lodge and My 
Mother Lodge, Morning Star, also all Past District 
Deputies, Past Masters, Ruling Masters, Wardens 
and Secretaries of the District, together with their 
lady friends and wives. This was attended by 
about 170 persons of whom the men present, 
formed I believe the key men in Masonry in the 
district. In many cases the ladies were not present, 
but those who were, reported a pleasant afternoon. 
We were honoured on this occasion by the presence 
of R.W. Bro. Harry Logan of North Huron, who 
was accompanied by his good wife. In the evening 
the brethren assembled in the Maitland Masonic 
Temple, where a register showed that all but two 
lodges in the district were represented by two or 
more. Matters of interest to the district were 
discussed, and each lodge was asked to appoint a 



232 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

committee on Masonic Education, which I regret 
to say was not carried out too promptly in some 
cases. At this meeting, was arranged the date 
upon which I would pay my official visit to each 
lodge in the district, a Trestle Board was then 
printed and mailed to the secretary of each lodge, 
and which was placed in some conspicuous place, 
so that the brethren could acquaint themselves 
with the dates of D.D.G.M. visits throughout the 
year. 

Masonic Education is, I am pleased to say, 
making good progress in the district of South 
Huron; several addresses along these lines have 
been given by brethren of the district, which was 
received with a great deal of interest. It has been 
a source of great pleasure to note the loyalty of the 
brethren of the district to their Grand Lodge and 
their Grand Master. 

Owing I believe to the financial situation, there 
has not been the number of applications for mem- 
bership, in some of the lodges, that some might 
wish for, but such does not reflect in any way upon 
the interest which the brethren have in their be- 
loved order. On every one of my visits, I had the 
pleasure of seeing a degree exemplified and the 
interest shown was such, that I could not help but 
feel, that the brethren were determined that the 
true and faithful spirit must prevail and exist in 
their lodge. 

I have noticed that some lodges are carrying a 
large amount of outstanding dues. This is a prob- 
lem which is difficult to handle. I have found that 
the brethren as a whole are trying to reduce their 
back dues, where ever possible and the distressed 
brother has been given sympathy and assistance 
when required. I can state quite clearly that in 
this respect the true spirit and principles of Ma- 
sonry are being applied. I asked the lodges to 
curtail their expenses on refreshments, particularly 
on my official visit as I felt that sometimes too 
costly a banquet was prepared on this occasion, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 233 

and on the whole my appeal was responded to and 
the enjoyment of the evening not impaired. 

As stated before I witnessed the conferring of a 
degree in every lodge, and am pleased to report 
that while some lodges are more snappy in their 
work than others there is nevertheless a degree of 
uniformity. The Masters and Officers being men 
held in high esteem by the brethren of their lodge 
and the communitv in which thev reside. 



Having made some comments about the officers 
I wish especially to mention the work of the 
secretaries which has during the past few years 
become very much more unpleasant than when con- 
ditions were much better financially. These breth- 
ren are giving to their respective lodges a service 
which sometimes are not fully appreciated, not only 
doing their allotted task but lending a helping 
hand in quiet and efficient manner, as to over- 
come some of the deficiencies of his presiding 
officer. I have had the very best assistance and 
co-operation from the secretaries of this district 
and I am pleased to note they are carrying into 
practice a suggestion of my immediate predecessor 
R.W. Bro. Gregory in exchanging lodge notices 
throughout the district. I trust my successor will 
find this condition carried to a perfect end during 
his term of office. 



It was a source of great pleasure during my 
visits to notice the large number of Past Masters 
who were present and in some instance to check 
up the register to ascertain just how often such 
attendance occurred and I was pleased to find they 
were on the whole regular in their attendance, and 
were a tower of strength to the Master and a source 
of encouragement to the brethren. I regret I can- 
not say this about every lodge in the district, some 
of our Past Masters have apparently lost enthusiasm 
and are not giving to the offices of the day and to 
their brethren the assistance which they at one 
time appreciated so highly. I trust many of the 



234 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Past Masters will try to correct this, which only 
they can do. 

During my term of office, I have endeavoured 
in my very limited way, to impress upon the 
brethren as a whole and more particularly those 
who are not officers, the responsibility which lies 
upon their shoulders in furthering the Craft and 
the preserving of Grand Lodge by putting into 
actual practice those principles of which we are all 
so justly proud. 

The thanks of the Masonic brethren in South 
Huron District is extended to R.W. Bro. Dunlop 
and his committee who have done so much for 
Masonic Education, and so to R.W. Bro. White of 
St. Marys; R.W. Bro. Meyers of Mitchell and W. 
Bro. Jefferson of Clinton who during the past year 
rendered valuable assistance. 

During the year, there was held in this district 
two meetings of which I wish to make special 
mention. One being a gathering which heretofore 
never assembled under such unique circumstances. 
On April 24th the only son of the M.W. the Grand 
Master was initiated into Free Masonry in Te- 
cumseh, the Mother Lodge of the Grand Master. 
The ceremony was performed by M. W. Bro. 
Copus, assisted by a number of Grand and Past 
Grand Lodge Officers. It is worthy of mention 
that there were present 4 Grand Lodge Officers; 
10 Past Grand Officers; 12 District Deputy Grand 
Masters; 13 Past District Deputy Grand Masters. 

I regret I could not be present on this unique 
and colorful occasion, as it unfortunately was 
arranged on a night when I was officially carrying 
out one of my Trestle Board engagements. Much 
more could be said, but space will not permit 

On May 22nd, at Goderich, this district was 
honoured by an official visit from the M.W. the 
Grand Master. About 225 brethren assembled 
to do honour to M.W. Bro. Frank Copus, I was 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 235 

pleased also to welcome on this occasion, two 
ruling D.D.G.M's from other districts; R.W. Bro. 
Harry Campbell of Bruce and R.W. Bro. Harry 
Logan of North Huron, also P. D. D. G. M. in the 
persons of R.W. Bro. Birnie Smith and R.W. Bro. 
Wm. Love of London district. 

It is worthy of mention that we were delighted 
to have the Grand Master introduced by the oldest 
Past District Deputy in the district, R.W. Bro. 
Dr. Shaw of Clinton. Special mention should be 
made of the masterly and inspiring address which 
was delivered by Most Wor. Bro. Copus; it was 
an evening and address long to be remembered by 
those who were fortunate enough to be present. 

It was my great privilege and pleasure to be 
present when the M.W. the Grand Master visited 
the districts of North Huron, Bruce and London. 
Acquaintances were made on each of these occasions 
which have been of real value to me, as well as 
extending to bonds of Masonry. I also visited 
with R.W. Bro. Logan on his official visit to his 
mother lodge, Teeswater, and also at Londesborough 
and with R.W. Bro. Tackaberry on his visit to 
Union Lodge. London. These visits to other dis- 
tricts were delightful and profitable and I regret 
I could not have attended more. I could not close 
these references without making mention of the 
large attendance with which I was greeted on al- 
most every one of my official visits which in one 
case one of the smallest lodge was over 100, such 
is the spirit of Masonry in this district, for which 
my predecessors did so much. I sincerely hope 
and trust that I have been able to add just a little 
in my feeble manner toward increasing the ties of 
brotherhood, and assisting in making men, better 
men and Masons, truer Masons. 

Each Lodge was officially visited by me once, 
and I was able to visit some of them on other 
occasions. I regret I found it impossible to visit 
all of the lodges a second time. The work in most 
cases was well performed, and there is a desire 



236 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

on the part of most officers to make the ceremonies 
as impressive as possible to the candidate and in- 
teresting to us, quite frequently called the side- 
benchers. 

I was most favourably impressed with the total 
absence of any acts which might have a tendency 
to arouse a sense of alarm in the candidate's mind, 
which might detract his attention from the useful 
lessons inculcated in our work. At the close of the 
lodge meetings, a social hour was spent in speeches, 
etc., at which much good I feel was accomplished. 
I was much impressed with the high standard of 
the remarks made by those who took part in the 
social program and the absence of what we might 
call off-coloured stories, which to me, was assur- 
ance of the high standard of Masonry in South 
Huron District. 

My official visits commenced with Morning 
Star No. 309, Carlow. This being my mother 
lodge was the first to receive a visit which was on 
Sept. 27th. The meeting was well attended by 
members, and visitors were present from many of 
the lodges in the district. W. Bro. Pentland and 
his staff of officers exemplified a second degree in a 
very creditable and impressive manner. This lodge 
is proud of the attendance it has at its regular 
meetings throughout the year, of Past Masters, 
its members are entirely rural. W. Bro. Munroe is 
an efficient secretary and issues a notice of meet- 
ings worthy of mention. 

Doric No. 233, Parkhill was visited on Oct. 
10th, a first degree was exemplified by the Master 
and his officers. This lodge has been most un- 
fortunate the past few years, but have surmounted 
their troubles and are now again on the road to 
prosperity. The work was not just up to standard, 
but with more practice and assistance from their 
Past Masters, I anticipate a marked improvement 
in future years. W. Bro. Portice their efficient 
secretary, certainly deserves credit for the manner 
in which he discharges his duties and the assist- 
ance he gives to the lodge in general. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 19^4 237 

Craig Lodge No. 574. I visited this lodge on 
Oct. 13th, and witnessed the work of the first 
degree which was done in a very creditable manner 
by W. Bro. Smith and his staff of officers. The 
brethren of this lodge are very hospitable and 
determined, and while they have some financial 
burdens due to acquiring suitable quarters, I have 
no doubt they will come out on top. After lodge a 
somewhat elaborate banquet was enjoyed by all 
after which speeches and songs were listened to 
with considerable interest and pleasure. 

St. Mary's Lodge No. 493. Was visited by me 
on Oct. 16th. I found the work to be well per- 
formed by W. Master and his officers. They have 
a good membership, but the average attendance 
does not compare too favourable; I fully expect 
greater interest in the future. 



Stratford No. 332, Stratford. Received me on 
my official visit on Nov. 13th. W. Bro. Culligan 
extending a most courteous and hearty welcome. 
This lodge has the happy faculty of making all 
visitors feel at home. It was a source of untold 
pleasure to listen to the perfect and impressive 
manner in which the first degree was conferred. 
The lodge is most fortunate, not only in its Master, 
but it also has a wonderful staff of junior officers 
and the loyal support of its Past Masters is worthy 
of mention. The future of this lodge is well 
assured. V.W. Bro. E. Denroche, is a most 
competent secretary. 

Tavistock No. 609, Tavistock. Was visited on 
Nov. 14th. This is the Baby Lodge in the district, 
and from the enthusiasm displayed by many of its 
members, it is a rugged child. Their lodge room 
is small, their hospitality large, their ambitions 
high. A third degree was exemplified in a fairly 
good manner. The meeting was largely attended 
by members and visitors. W. Bro. Holley, the 
secretary is a Pillar in this lodge. 



23S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Zurich Xo. 224, Hensall. This lodge was 
visited on November 27th. I found the work of 
the evening to be done in a most creditable way 
by W. Bro. Goodwin and his officers. This lodge 
is fortunate in having a very small amount of out- 
standing dues, which bears evidence of the thorough 
manner in which R.W. Bro. Coles performs his 
allotted task. R.W. Bro. Coles has since 
been moved to Palmerston and his place as secre- 
tary is very well filled by W. Bro. A. W. E. Hemphill. 

Clinton Xo. 84, Clinton. Was next visited. 
It was my pleasure to witness the conferring of a 
third degree in a manner which one might be 
tempted to term perfect. This lodge has a very 
young snappy staff of junior officers, who are going 
to keep Clinton Lodge well to the fore for some- 
time. They have the support and assistance of a 
large staff of Past Masters; R.W. Bro. Rorke is the 
efficient secretary of this lodge. 

Maitland Xo. 33, Goderich. On Tuesday, 
May 13th. I visited this lodge and witnessed the 
conferring of a first degree in a highly delightful 
and instructive manner. This lodge has in W. Bro. 
Sanderson a very efficient and capable master and 
he is surrounded by a strong staff of junior officers, 
W. Bro. Geo. MacVicar being the capable secretary. 

Tecumseh X'o. 114, Stratford was officially 
visited on May 16th, at which time a most cordial 
welcome was extended to me by the members and 
visitors. It was not a difficult task to sit in the 
lodge room and hear W. Bro. Smith and his able 
staff of officers confer a degree. They are main- 
taining the high standard of their distinguished 
ancestors. This lodge is particularly proud of one 
of its sons, Most Wor. Bro. Frank Copus, who now 
enjoys the highest office in Masonry, that can be 
bestowed on one of its members. They also had 
the unique pleasure of having the G.M. initiate 
his only son, mention of which has already been 
made elsewhere. W. Bro. Rust, the secretary, 
keeps his books and records in good condition. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 239 

Britannia No. 170, Seaforth. No one could 
desire a more cordial welcome than was extended 
to me on the occasion of my official visit to this 
lodge on Apr. 2nd., when I had the pleasure of 
hearing W. Bro. Reid, confer a first degree in a 
very dramatic and inspiring manner to my entire 
satisfaction. W. Bro. Reid is surrounded by a 
strong list of officers and has a most efficient 
secretary, R.W. Bro. C. Aberhardt. 

Milverton, No. 478, Milverton. It was a real 
pleasure to visit this lodge on Apr. 16th and to be 
received so cordially by a lodge which I visited 
for the first time. As the lodge had no regular 
work, they exemplified the work of the first degree 
to my satisfaction. There is a deep interest in 
Masonry by its members and because they have not 
had much work of late, is no fault of theirs. They 
are in good spirits and looking forward to a brighter 
future. 

Lebanon Forest No. 113, Exeter. I paid my 
official visit to this lodge on April 23 and was 
greeted by a large number of members and visitors. 
The brethren of this lodge are noted for the visiting 
they do among other lodges and I could wish that 
some of the other districts would follow their 
example. The work of the evening was done in a 
manner that would do credit, and honor to any 
lodge. The Master and his officers are very en- 
thusiastic, as are also the members. 

Tudor, No. 141, Mitchell. On my official visit 
to this lodge on April 24th, I was extended a most 
cordial welcome by W. Bro. Tuer and the large 
number of members and visitors which almost taxed 
the capacity of their lodge room. The work of the 
officers in exemplifying the first degree was on the 
average good. While some nervousness was shown 
by one of the officers, which was some handicap to 
him on my visit, I was informed from a very 
reliable source, that the officer under ordinary con- 
ditions done good work. My sympathy goes out to 
such and my suggestions to such have been to for- 



240 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

get the presence of strange brethren and the work 
will be much easier. This lodge is fortunate in 
having so capable a secretary as R.W. Bro. Meyers, 
and a strong list of Past Masters. 

Irving Xo. 154, Lucan. Was officially visited 
on April 26th, when it was my pleasure to see the 
first degree conferred on one of the outstanding 
candidates of the year. The work was done in a 
fairly smooth manner. The lodge room was 
extremelv warm and crowded, which interfered no 
doubt, with their usual degree of perfection. The 
Master and officers are all sincere in their service 
to the craft and their lodge. 

Granton, Xo. 483, Granton. I paid my official 
visit to this lodge on April 30th and was very heartily 
received by the Master and brethren. One of the 
outstanding features of this meeting, was the large 
number of visiting brethren from other lodges, not 
only in the district, but also from our sister district 
of London. It was a real pleasure for me to have 
on this occasion the association of R.W. Bro. 
Victor Tackabury, District Deputy for London 
District. The officers exemplified a first degree in a 
fairly smooth manner, which won remarks of 
corimendation. 

St. James Xo. 73, St. Marys. On May 7th, 
I * aid my official visit to this lodge. It has some 
vet y enthusiastic Past Masters; interest in the 
lod^e appears to be lacking by the brethren in 
general. A first degree was conferred in a very 
creditable way by W. Bro. Milne and his officers. 
For some years, there have been two Masonic 
Lodges in St. Marys, and I am pleased to report 
that it is expected they will unite their forces in 
September. I congratulate the brethren of St. 
Marys and St. James Lodges on this wise move and 
I bespeak for them every success. I can assure 
not only the brethren of St. Marys town, but the 
Grand Lodge also, that the district of South Huron 
heard with a great deal of pleasure the successful 
agreement which these lodges have entered into. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1931 211 

Elma No. 456, Monkton. This is a small lodge 
but loyal in every respect. On my visit on May 
10th, they exemplified a first degree in a manner 
that would do credit to any set of officers. The 
degree of hospitality with which they receive 
visitors is indeed worthy of mention. The officers 
are enthusiastic and there is evidence of much 
brotherly love displayed in the lodge room. I 
thoroughly enjoyed my visit with them. 

In conclusion, I again wish to thank the breth- 
ren of South Huron District for the honor con- 
ferred on me a year ago. Whether I have filled 
the position with honor to the Craft and credit to 
myself, I shall leave with my brethren to decide. 
I have endeavored during my term of office, to 
instil into the minds of the brethren the dignity 
and high importance of Masonry. I have tried to 
be forbearing rather than critical, and in this spirit, 
I have learned much and have still to learn. I 
have formed many distinguished acquaintances 
during my term of office and its many pleasures 
will be happy memories for the reflections of future 
years. I wish also to thank the brethren for the 
many kindnesses extended to me during the year, 
which has been a most pleasant one, without a note 
of discord. I bespeak for my successor, the same 
cordial assistance which was so cheerfully extended 
to me. 

Fraternally yours, 
HUGH HILL, 
D.D.G.M. South Huron District.

ST. LAWRENCE DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In submitting this report on the condition of 
Masonry in St. Lawrence District I desire first of 
all to express my most grateful appreciation of the 
honour conferred upon me by the brethren of St. 
Lawrence District in electing me District Deputy 
Grand Master for the past year. I also desire to 
thank the brethren of each and every lodge for their 
faithful as well as loyal support and for the en- 
thusiastic and cordial receptions extended to me as 
I visited the several lodges as representative of our 
Grand Master. To the Past District Deputy 
Grand Masters I am also deeply indebted — their 
splendid co-operation is appreciated beyond words. 
Some one has said "To be a friend one must show 
himself friendly." No one has better evidenced 
this maxim than the brethren of St. Lawrence 
District. 

My first official duty was to appoint W. Bro. 
Harold Gardiner District Secretary and Bro. Rev. 
N. S. McKechnie District Chaplain. To both of 
these brethren I express my thanks for assistance 
and co-operation during the year. 

To R.W. Bro. Scobie D.D.G.M. of Ottawa 
District and to R.W. Bro. Johnston, D.D.G.M. of 
Frontenac District my sincerest thanks are ex- 
tended. Both of these loyal and worthy brethren 
accompanied me on some of my visitations and 
contributed materially to the success of the gather- 
ings. It was my joy to reciprocate in some small 
way by joining with R.W. Bro. Johnston when he 
visited his mother lodge and my deep regret that 
other engagements prevented my accepting similar 
hospitality and good will from R.W. Bro. Scobie 
and the brethren of Ottawa district. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 243 

Early in September, I had the privilege and 
the pleasure of entertaining the Masters and 
Secretaries of the several lodges in the district 
together with the Executive of our Past Master's 
and Wardens' Association to dinner at the Revere 
House in Brockville. At this "get together" 
meeting plans were presented and suggestions ad- 
vanced which contributed materially to the progress 
of the year. 

Each lodge was visited during the year and on 
every occasion the brethren showed marked skill in 
Alasonic knowledge and capability in the work of 
the degrees of the Craft. Special notice must be 
given to the remarkable improvement in the work 
of Crystal Fountain Lodge in North Augusta. 
A monthly bulletin giving advance notice of Ma- 
sonic visitations and special events in the several 
lodges was mailed the lodges of the district during 
the larger part of the season. 

Central Lodge in Prescott celebrated her 
Seventy-fifth Anniversary in December. The 
brethren of the district were invited to join in 
attending Divine Service on Sunday and in a 
jubilee meeting and banquet on Tuesday. On 
Sunday, a forceful sermon was preached by Arch- 
deacon Coleman of Kingston and on Tuesday 
evening an eloquent address was delivered by R.W. 
Bro. Bishop Lyons, of the Diocese of Ontario. 

During the past }-ear I have also had the 
honour of attending Divine worship with the 
brethren in Lyn, Mallorytown, Lansdowne, Cardinal 
and Brockville. On each and all of these occasions 
due reverence and proper homage was paid to the 
Great Architect of the Universe. It is my regret 
that more of our brethren do not avail themselves 
of so fittingly rendering praise to God from Whom 
all blessings flow. 

It was a real pleasure to unite with my 
brethren in Capitular Masonry in Brockville as 
we welcomed Grand Chapter in February. The 



244 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

time was all too short for me to intermingle and 
to entertain, on behalf of St. Lawrence District as 
I had desired. 

Two very pleasant and I can say without 
the slightest equivocation profitable meetings were 
held during the year by our Past Masters' and 
Wardens' Association in September in Toledo and 
in June in Brockville. At the former gathering 
Justice Hope was the guest speaker and at the 
latter our worthy Grand Master MAY. Bro. Copus. 

Masonic Education formed the subject for 
special consideration in nearly all of the lodges of 
the district during the year. RAV. Bros. Forbes, 
Young and Ferguson, contributed largely to the 
development of this phase of our endeavour. I 
mvself set out at the beginning of the year with 
the objective of nineteen entirely different ad- 
dresses in each of the nineteen lodges. With the 
help of the Great Architect of the Universe the 
real Source of Wisdom and the sympathetic co- 
operation of my brethren I was able to carry 
through my objective— weak and humble as my 
effects at times may have been. 

A visit to Cardinal Lodge in Eastern Associa- 
tion and the opportunity of addressing the brethren 
on the subject "I Dare You'' was a real privilege 
as was the part I had in welcoming the brethren 
of Watertown Lodge from New York State as 
they visited Brockville and Sussex Lodge in the 
early fall on a gala night. 

Two most interesting occasions were a Past 
District Deputy Grand Master's Night in my 
Mother Lodge when all the chairs were occupied 
by Past District Deputies the first degree being 
conferred and a Royal Canadian Mounted Police 
Night in Sussex Lodge, Brockville when members 
of the Mounted Police attired in their attractive 
uniforms conferred the degree. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 24 3 

Past Masters' Nights and scheduled inter- 
change of visits were carried through in many of 
our lodges. 

I installed the officers of Sussex and Salem 
Lodges in Brockville on St. John's Night and con- 
ducted the funeral service for the brethren of Lans- 
downe Lodge as they paid proper respect to their 
deceased secretary — a most faithful and efficient 
brother. 

The dearth of candidates and the financial 
problems have remained perplexing questions but 
as the rays of light from the rising sun which we 
trust will dispel the clouds of depression, begin to 
appear, we hope for the early coming of better 
and happier days. 

With all good wishes for the continued growth 
and development of Grand Lodge. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 
W. F. REYNOLDS 
D.D.G.M. St. Lawrence District.

ST. THOMAS DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In submitting my report on the condition of 
Masonry in St. Thomas District I wish to express 
my sincere appreciation to the brethren of the 
district for the great honor they conferred upon me, 
and Prince of Wales Lodge in electing me unani- 
mously as the representative of the Most Wor. 
Grand Master in this District. I also wish to ex- 
press my sincere thanks to all the past D.D.G.M's 
for their splendid advice and support throughout 
the year, as well as to the members of the District 
in general, which has rendered the past year the 
most pleasant and profitable in my Masonic career 
and I hope of some advantage to the district. I 
wish to thank the officers and members of all the 
lodges in the district for the way they received me 
on all occasions. I was a comparative stranger to 
most of them last July, but have received such 
warm welcomes on all occasions as well as such 
splendid support at all my official visits throughout 
the District that I cannot find words to express my 
gratitude to them. 

My first official act was to appoint W. Bro. 
S. A. Dell of P. of W. Lodge No. 171, District 
Secretary and to him I wish to express my sincere 
thanks for his assistance on all occasions. 

I regret to have to report the passing of one of 
our P. D.D.G.M's in the person of R.W. Bro. J. E. 
Milner who passed away on Jan. loth. Bro. 
Milner is being missed very much in the district 
as he had made a host of sincere friends among the 
Masons of the district. 

Following a custom as old as St. Thomas 
District I paid my first official visit to St. Thomas 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 247 

Lodge No. 44, on Oct. 5th, and was greatly 
encouraged by the warm welcome I received from 
the large gathering of members and visitors. I 
had the honor of being presented by the oldest and 
the youngest P.D.D.G.M's in the district in the 
persons of R.W. Bro. Henry Roe, who was D.D.G. 
M. in 1899 and is still as enthusiastic a Mason as 
ever, and R.W. Bro. Scarff, the I.P.D.D.G.M. The 
Third degree was conferred in a very capable 
manner by W. Bro. Pressey and his officers, assisted 
by a number of Past Masters of the lodge. A 
feature of the evening was the large number of 
Past Grand Lodge Officers present, sixteen, and 
also the number of visitors, every lodge in the 
district was well represented except two, as well as 
several visitors from Wilson district. The Secre- 
tary's books, which are kept by R.W. Bro. F. W. 
Judd, were found to be in excellent condition. I 
also visited this lodge on several occasions and 
believe that they are doing a great deal towards 
promoting a real Masonic spirit in the district. 

On Oct. 27th I visited officially my mother 
lodge, Prince of Wales No. 171, and was greeted 
by a large attendance of members and visitors, 
there being no degree, W. Bro. Patterson and his 
officers opened in the three degrees and gave the 
obligations very capably. There have been no 
candidates for some time but the officers are en- 
thusiastic and capable and will uphold the tradi- 
tions of the lodge. 

On Nov. 1st I visited Cameron Lodge No. 232 
Dutton which was largely attended by members 
and visitors. I had the pleasure of welcoming R.W. 
Bro. Crewe, D.D.G.M. of Chatham District to our 
district. W. Bro. Oliver and his officers exempli- 
fied the Third Degree very capably, and we were 
entertained splendidly. The books are well kept by 
the secretary, W. Bro. Crawford, but unfortunately, 
like most of the lodges in the district the finances 
are somewhat impaired, but we hope that that 
condition will soon show improvement. 



248 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On Nov. 3rd I visited Rodney Lodge No. 411 
and received a warm welcome. There was a good 
attendance of members and visitors. W. Bro. D. J. 
McDonald and his officers exemplified the Second 
degree, with credit to themselves and their lodge. 
The books were well kept and their quarters are 
very comfortable. 

I paid my official visit to McColl Lodge No. 
386 West Lome on Nov. 13th and was pleased with 
the large attendance and hearty welcome I re- 
ceived there. W. Bro. A. D. McKillop and his 
officers conferred the Third Degree on two very 
efficient candidates and the work was done very 
impressively and well. V.W. Bro. Petherick keeps 
the books in excellent shape. 

On Nov. 17 I visited St. Mark's Lodge No. 
94 Pt. Stanley, and in spite of a very bad snow 
storm there was a large attendance of members and 
visitors. The W.M. Bro. Newkirk had unfortunately 
been ill for nearly a year, but was able to be 
present, though unable to take the East. W. Bro. 
Fraser acted as W.M. and the officers opened in the 
three degrees and gave an outline of the work in 
each degree. The Stewards described the work of 
preparation, the Deacons gave the Floor work and 
the Wardens gave the Obligation, and it was done 
splendidly by all. Rev. Bro. Boa then gave a 
splendid lecture on the Sword, which was much 
appreciated. W. Bro. Goodhue, the secretary, 
keeps the books in splendid shape. 

I visited St. David's Lodge No. 302 on Feb. 
loth and in spite of the sub-zero temperature there 
was a good attendance. The First degree was 
exemplified by W. Bro. Roulston and his officers, 
assisted by several Past Masters and was very 
well done. The Wardens and Junior Officers did 
their work particularly well. The secretary's 
books, under the care of W. Bro. Stapleton, are in 
excellent condition. 

On Feb. 28th I visited Dufferin Lodge No. 364 
at Melbourne. This lodge was very unfortunate 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 240 

in losing their lodge rooms by fire last year, but 
are rebuilding and will soon have real good quart- 
ers. The First degree was exemplified by W. Bro. 
Olde and his officers in a very creditable manner. 
The P.M's of Dufferin Lodge presented the lodge 
with a beautiful V.O.T.S.L. R.W. Bro. Campbell 
of Beaver Lodge, Strathroy was present and pre- 
sented them with a Book-Mark, and W. Bro. Rice 
of Talbot Lodge, St. Thomas, presented them with 
a beautiful set of gavels and working tools, as a 
start on furnishing their new lodge rooms. We all 
wish them every success in their undertaking. 

I paid my official visit to Warren Lodge No. 
120 Fingal on Mar. 6th. There was no degree at 
this meeting, but I visited this lodge several times 
during the year and they do their work very well 
indeed. R.W. Bro. Burke gave his talk on 
the Jr. Warden's Lecture, which was, as usual, 
very much appreciated. The books are well kept 
by the secretary and they have had a fair amount 
of work during the year. I also had the pleasure 
of assisting in installing the new officers on June 
25th. 



On March 22nd I visited Talbot Lodge No. 
546 St. Thomas. W. Bro. Rice and his officers ex- 
emplified the First degree very impressively. The 
Junior Warden's Lecture was particularly well done 
by the Jr. Warden, Bro. Pettit. The books are 
well kept by the Secretary, W. Bro. McPherson and 
while this lodge has had very little work for some 
time, they have good officers who can take care of 
it when it comes. 

My last official visit was to Malahide Lodge 
No. 140 at Aylmer. The First degree was exem- 
plified by W. Bro. Cole and his officers in a very 
creditable manner. The secretary, R.W. Bro. 
Stewart has one of the best sets of books in the 
district. The lodge rooms are beautifully furnished 
and there is a real fraternal spirit among the mem- 
bers. 



250 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On the evening of April 20th we had the honor 
and privilege of entertaining the Most Wor. the 
Grand Master, F. A. Copus in the Masonic Temple 
St. Thomas on his official visit to the district. 
M.W. Bro. Copus gave us a very inspiring address. 
We also had the pleasure of listening to splendid 
addresses bv R.W. Bro. Birnie Smith, London, 
R.W. Bro. ' Gregorv, Stratford, and R.W. Bro. 
Tackabury, D.D.G.'M. of London District. We 
had a large gathering and a pleasant evening. 

Before closing I wish to give it as my opinion 
that the work done in all the lodges in the district 
is particularly good, and the lodge rooms are all 
comfortable and nicely furnished, but unfortunately 
the finances of most of the lodges are more or less 
impaired but that seems to be a general condition 
throughout the jurisdiction and we are all hopeful 
of an early improvement. 

The Masonic Education Committees in the 
several lodges are, I think, working under some 
difficulties this year, in that the instructors have 
gone over most of the material so thoroughly in the 
past two years that they find it hard to prepare 
lectures from the material that is available but we 
hope that when the Manual for the other degrees 
is at hand that the work will go forward more suc- 
cessfully. We are particularly indebted to R.W. 
Bro. Burke for his untiring efforts on behalf of 
Masonic Education in this district. 

I wish to thank each of the lodges for the 
splendid receptions I received, and also for the 
splendid entertainment furnished, and for the large 
attendance of members and visitors at all my 
official visits, and I bespeak for my successor the 
same loyal support and brotherly love that has 
been so cheerfully given to me. 

Fraternally submitted, 

J. C. DUXDAS, 

D.D.G.M. St. Thomas District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 251 

TEMISKAMING DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren : — 

It is my privilege and pleasure to submit for 
your consideration- my report of the condition of 
Masonry in the Temiskaming District. 

W. Bro. T. Scott accepted the duties of secre- 
tary for the district. I take this opportunity of 
thanking him for his efforts. 

Following are some brief comments on my 
official visits to the various lodges: 

Spruce Falls, No. 648, Kapuskasing. — My first 
official appearance was made at my home lodge on 
Sept. 11th where I received a royal welcome. A 
candidate was initiated in a very satisfactory 
manner. This lodge is doing good work with the 
Educational program and I hope they keep it up. 

Elk Lake No. 507, Elk Lake.— Officially visited 
this lodge on Sept. 12th and acted as Installing 
Master. The W. Master and Wardens were re- 
elected for another term of office so to qualify them 
for Past Rank as their Installation date has been 
changed. Our Elk Lake brethren have passed 
through a very quiet period the last few years, but 
are looking forward to renewed activity with the 
opening up of several mining properties in the 
vicinity. This was a very pleasant meeting. 
Bro. Mills the secretary has the books and records 
in excellent condition. 

Golden Beaver No. 528, Timmins. — Made my 
official visit on Sept. 12th. This is my Mother 
Lodge and my first opportunity to visit in seven 
years. Needless to say I had a most enjoyable 
time renewing old acquaintances. There was no 



_'.)2 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

degree work but the Wor. Master opened and 
closed in all three degrees in a capable manner and 
some time was spent in Educational matters so a 
most instructive and pleasant time was spent. 
There was a large attendance. 

Cochrane No. 530, Cochrane. I visited this 
lodge on Nov. 25th which was the opening night of 
their new Temple. The Cochrane brethren are to 
be congratulated on their foresight and confidence 
in the future by commencing this undertaking 
during the existing unsettled conditions, but I feel 
sure that their optimism will be rewarded in a few 
years time when they complete this excellent struc- 
ture, for at the prevailing low cost of materials, 
etc. they are able to build substantially at a mini- 
mum cost. 

One of the features of this event was the large 
attendance of visitors from Abitibi Lodge at 
Iroquois Falls. Approximately 55 arrived in a 
special coach and took part in the evening's work 
when two candidates were initiated into the craft. 

Abitibi No. 540 Iroquois Falls. Made my 
official visit to this lodge on Jan. 19th which was 
their Installation night. R.W. Bro. Mason of 
South Porcupine was Installing Master and offici- 
ated in his usual capable manner. This event al- 
ways attracts a large number of visitors from all 
over the district for Abitibi Lodge have a reputa- 
tion for hospitality well known. Having no one 
eligible for the Master's chair this year as both 
Wardens had left the town the choice fell on W. 
Bro. Spence to fill another term of office, a most 
satisfactory decision for under his experienced 
leadership Abitibi is assured of maintaining its high 
ideals and purposes. 

South Porcupine, No. 506. — Visited this lodge 
on April 5th where an excellent candidate was 
initiated in a most impressive manner. This Bro. 
is to be congratulated that he was admitted into 
Masonry under such ideal conditions and I wish 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 253 

to take this opportunity to also congratulate the 
Master and his officers for such a satisfactory 
exemplification of the first degree. 

Haileybury, No. 485. — Visited this lodge on 
May 3rd. The second degree was exemplified in a 
satisfactory manner. Several visitors from Temis- 
kaming lodge at New Liskeard were a welcome 
addition to the meeting. As a boy I lived for a 
number of years in this town and an enjoyable 
time was spent renewing old friends and acquaint- 
ances. 

Temiskaming No. 462, New Liskeard. — The 
Mother Lodge of our District welcomed me on 
May 4th when I made my official visit. The 
Third degree was conferred on a particularly well 
instructed brother in a most impressive manner. 
For my convenience an emergent meeting was 
arranged for this date and I was particularlv 
gratified that the attendance was so high. This 
was much appreciated for to visit Temiskaming 
on their regular meeting night would have added 
approximately 500 miles to my travels. 

Silver Lodge No. 486, Cobalt.— My official 
visit to this lodge was on May 7th when a candi- 
date was initiated into our Craft by the Master 
and his officers in a commendable manner, for it is 
some time since they received their last candidate, 
but their work was practically perfect showing that 
considerable time had been spent in mastering the 
work. Silver Lodge is suffering from the decline 
in mining activity and a large proportion of their 
membership has moved to other localities but the 
remaining few are keeping the flag flying. 

Doric No. 623 Kirkland Lake.— On the 7th 
of June I made my official visit to this lodge. This 
was their Installation Night. As Installing Master 
I was gratified to receive splendid assistance from a 
large number of Past Masters. 

Englehart Lodge No. 534, Englehart. — My last 
official visit was made to this lodge on June 11th. 



264 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I was introduced to the lodge by R.W. Bro. Patter- 
son. The Third degree was exemplified in a satis- 
factory manner. 

I should like to express my appreciation of the 
unfailing courtesy and consideration which was 
extended to me at every lodge I visited, and it is to 
be regretted that I had to refuse many kind invi- 
tations to be present at various functions, but 
living in the extreme end of our district the dis- 
tances to be travelled were very large and I found 
the task of making one official appearance per lodge 
as much as I had time to do, with one exception 
when I was able to act as Installing officer for 
Cochrane on June 23rd. 

I offer my sympathy to the Cochrane brethren 
for their sad loss last fall when V.W. Bro. Mclnnis 
passed to the Grand Lodge above. He was a 
Mason in every sense of the word and a most 
useful member of the lodge. 

On my visits I endeavoured to promote to the 
best of my ability the continuation of educational 
work in the lodges. The majority have responded 
in a commendable manner and I would urge them 
to keep up their efforts, for it is noticeable that in 
the lodges that have promoted this work the most, 
the attendance and general interest is higher. 

In conclusion would state that Masonry in the 
Temiskaming District is on a sound footing. 
Financially there are no serious troubles. Member- 
ship is about holding its own, the work is uniform 
and generally of a high standard. In closing I 
wish to extend to the lodges of the District my 
appreciation for the opportunity to serve them and 
I hope my efforts have been of some slight benefit 
to them. 

Fraternally submitted, 

G. F. BAILEY, 

D.D.G.M. Temiskaming District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 19.34 255 

TORONTO DISTRICT "A" 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada, in the province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Time in its ever onward course again calls for a 
retrospect of the work of the Craft during the past 
year and it is with great pleasure that I present 
my report on the condition of Masonry as I have 
found it in Toronto District "A" since last Grand 
Lodge Communication. 

Before proceeding with my report may I take 
this opportunity to express my deepest appreciation 
and thanks to the brethren of the district for their 
confidence in electing me to the honorable, im- 
portant and responsible position of D.D.G.M. 
I also wish at this time to tender to the Worshipful 
Masters, Officers and brethren of the various lodges 
my sincere thanks for the kindly and courteous 
manner in which I was received on all official 
visits to their respective lodges. 

Masonry, I find, is steadily progressing through- 
out the whole district. The ritualistic work of the 
Worshipful Masters and officers was, without 
exception, excellent, and it was with real joy and 
satisfaction that I commended these officers on each 
official inspection. Their work demonstrated that 
they were well qualified; endowed with a spirit of 
zeal and inspiration; with a unity of purpose and a 
spiritual insight and outlook. 

While few lodges show an increase in member- 
ship, I believe the aim at present tends more to 
quality than quantity. While we are prone to 
deplore what we now term the "Depression," we 
may yet find that it has purged us of many things 
which are as dross and that the pure gold alone 
remains. If the material things give way to the 
spiritual, and the truths which are everlasting find 



250 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUM, COMMUNICATION 

a deeper expression in the hearts of the brethren, 
owing to present conditions, then will the "Depres- 
sion" prove a blessing and not a curse. 

It was with great delight I found in many in- 
stances that the humblest members of the Craft 
were very much interested in the truths of our Order. 
This I found had in most cases been engendered 
by the zeal and earnestness with which the Wor- 
shipful Masters and Officers had from time to time 
exemplified the various degrees. All Worshipful 
Masters and officers, who by efficient and impres- 
sive work can implant such an interest in the minds 
of a newly initiated brother, are worthy of the 
highest praise and commendation. To so impress a 
candidate that he will leave the lodge room a new 
man; to give him a new conception of his duty 
towards his fellow-man and to lead him to a fuller 
understanding of the manner in which such duty 
should manifest itself, should be the ideal of every 
Worshipful Master and officer. 

I am indeed happy to be able to report that 
the spirit of unity and harmony prevails through- 
out the district, and that the spirit of brotherly 
love and charitv has been beautifully manifested 
by practically every lodge throughout the past year. 
Commendation for the practice of this truly 
Masonic virtue is not confined to lodges alone as, 
during my term of office, there has come to my 
knowledge many cases where help and comfort 
have been extended by indiv dual members of 
numerous lodges. 

My first duty on assuming office was to ap- 
point W. Bro. David Smith as District Secretary 
and I cannot speak too highly of the services he 
has rendered in that connection. The pleasure I 
have had working with him; the faithful and 
efficient manner in which he has fulfilled his tasks; 
the pleasing manner he has at all times exhibited; 
the deep interest he has taken in all his duties and 
the great assistance he has given me in the carrying 
out of my official duties will long linger in my 
memorv. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 257 

It was with considerable pleasure that I re- 
ceived from the District Secretary his reports on the 
books of the various lodges. From such reports 
I found that the secretaries and treasurers, on whom 
so much depends, had been faithful and pains- 
taking in their respective duties and had kept their 
records in excellent condition. I also found that, 
in practically every instance, the above mentioned 
officers were keenly interested in their respective 
lodges and were exercising every effort to promote 
the welfare of the lodge in every way. This was 
expressed in a delightfully tangible way by the 
secretaries of several lodges who by their gracious 
action during the past year assisted their lodge 
over what I sincerely trust will be but a temporary 
time of stress and strain. These secretaries, I am 
sure, have merited and have received the applause 
of their brethren and I wish to add my com- 
mendation for the truly masonic spirit which they 
exhibited. 

The large number of brethren who have been 
suspended for "non-payment of dues" or who have 
taken their "demit" during the past year is a 
matter for serious thought. Doubtless in each 
lodge there are a few members who, only because 
of indifference or carelessness, have not responded 
to the many calls to meet their obligations. For 
such members I hold no brief. On the other hand 
we must ascertain — wherever possible — if care- 
lessness or indifference are alone to blame or if 
financial distress is not the cause of a brother's 
dues remaining unpaid. With this thought in 
mind I earnestly urged each lodge to appoint a 
committee whose duties would consist of thoroughly 
investigating the circumstances — financial and other- 
wise — of all members in arrears prior to suspending 
them for N.P.D. This procedure, I am glad to 
report, has been followed by most lodges in District 
"A" with results even more valuable than those of 
a purely financial nature. 

The arrears of dues are also a sourcefof serious 
concern being, probablv, in many cases higher than 



2JS GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

at any time in the history of many of the lodges. 
This is probably due in a large measure to present 
financial conditions. I am quite convinced, how- 
ever, that if a personal canvas is made of all mem- 
bers in arrears as outlined under "suspensions", 
such arrears will soon revert to more reasonable 
figures. This has been forcibly demonstrated by 
one lodge, which at the end of 1933 had a con- 
siderable amount of dues in arrears, but by an 
energetic campaign has, either by collections or 
remissions, reduced the outstanding dues to a com- 
paratively nominal figure. 

In reviewing the financial statements of the 
various lodges I found in many cases that the dis- 
bursements greatly exceeded the gross receipts, 
during the past year. This is a most unhealthy 
condition and I would again urge each lodge to 
take drastic steps to remedy this state of affairs 
at the earliest possible moment. As I pointed out 
during my official visits of inspection every lodge 
should budget its expenditure so that, if ic is 
humanly possible, such expenditure will not ex- 
ceed the income derived 'from dues and interest on 
investments — if any — thus allowing the revenue 
derived from initiations and affiliations to be placed 
in a reserve account to meet any contingency 
which may arise in the future. 

In summing up matters of a financial nature 
may I again emphasize what I have repeatedly 
stressed in the various lodges, namely, that while 
not depreciating in any way the value of sincere 
and impressive ritualistic work, at the same time I 
am quite convinced that the practical or business 
side of the lodge should be given more consideration, 
the latter, in my opinion, being probably more im- 
portant than the former under present day financial 
conditions. 

During the year I had the privilege of attend- 
ing many interesting meetings throughout the dis- 
tricts such as Installations, Past Masters' Nights, 
Senior Wardens' Nights, Fathers' and Sons' Nights, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 259 

Memorial services, etc. While each meeting is 
worthy of mention, space restricts me to a few 
brief sentences on several meetings of a special 
nature. At the September meeting of my own 
lodge — Fidelity — I was tendered an official recep- 
tion at which a large number of visiting brethren 
were present. To W. Bro. A. E- Lowery I again 
wish to express my sincere thanks for the warmth 
of his welcome and for the kind sentiments ex- 
pressed on that occasion. On September 26th I 
had the privilege of visiting Runnymede Lodge 
when I had the honour of presenting to R.W. Bro. 
R. A. Stewart, my worthy predecessor, the regalia 
of his office. R.W. Bro. Stewart in turn presented 
V.W. Bro. E. A. Stuart, the past District Secretary 
with the regalia of a Grand Steward. This was a 
most happy occasion and the large turn-out of 
lodge members and visiting brethren truly expressed 
the high regard in which these well skilled Masons 
are held by the brethren of the district. On 
September 8th I visited General Mercer Lodge and 
had the pleasure of witnessing the presentation of 
the regalia of a Grand Steward to V.W. Bro. N. 
Shunk, who, although in his eighty-first year and a 
member of the Craft for 56 years, still finds great 
joy in advancing the truths of Masonry. On 
November 9th I was privileged to take part in the 
annual Memorial Service of Connaught Lodge. 
The service was carried out with the utmost 
solemnity and dignity and left a deep impression 
on all who witnessed it. On January 6th a most 
inspiring meeting, consisting of practically every 
Worshipful Master of the district and the Wardens ; 
was held in Lansdowne Temple. At this meeting 
I endeavoured to impress upon all present the great 
truths of Masonry and also to set forth the various 
details which Grand Lodge was anxious to see 
carried out in connection with the activities of the 
subordinate lodges. The many questions raised 
and answered that evening proved beyond doubt 
that not only the Worshipful Masters but the 
Wardens also were vitally interested in their work 
and were eagerly looking forward to serving their 
lodges to the utmost of their ability. 



2G0 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

With regard to the social activities of the 
various lodges, it is with great pleasure that to the 
best of my knowledge and after having made well 
over one hundred visits throughout the year, I can 
report that the entertainment provided at the social 
hour was of a consistently high order and quite in 
harmony with the labours of the evening. The 
chief aim of Masonry is not entertainment or 
recreation but information and inspiration and our 
social activities should at all times be conducted 
with an uplifting and helpful end in view. I also 
found at the social hour that generally speaking 
expensive banquets had given way to more moder- 
ate refreshments which I believe is a move in the 
right direction. 

In connection with Masonic education I find 
that there is an increasing interest among the 
brethren, a searching after truths and questions 
constantly being asked regarding the meaning of 
our many symbols. In each address I gave I 
endeavoured to speak on these symbols and the 
truths therein contained and to the utmost of my 
ability have kept uppermost the high ideals of the 
Order. Talks of such a nature I found, to my 
great delight, were received with deep interest by 
the brethren. 

Senior Wardens' nights in the past have un- 
doubtedly been of great value to the incoming 
Masters of the various lodges, but such nights have 
become so numerous in late years as to have a most 
become burdensome. With this in mind the Senior 
Wardens of 1934 in this district have, in my judg- 
ment, very wisely decided to curtail these meetings 
so that in place of each lodge having a Senior 
Wardens' Night, one, or at the most two meetings 
of this nature will be held in each Temple through- 
out the vear. A Senior Wardens' Association has 
been formed by these officers and during the past 
six months it has been my happy privilege to be 
present at their meetings, one being of a social 
nature and two of an educational or business na- 
ture. From the keen interest exhibited by the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 261 

Senior Wardens at their educational or business 
meetings; from the eagerness manifested in their 
desire to be thoroughly competent to become rulers 
in the Craft and from many happy personal 
contacts with each of them during the past year I 
am fully convinced that Masonry in Toronto Dis- 
trict "A" will continue to have most efficient 
leadership in the coming year. 

To the large number of brethren who accom- 
panied me on all official occasions I wish to express 
my deep gratitude. Their presence was a real in- 
spiration and their loyal support throughout the 
year demands my most grateful thanks. 

My term as District Deputy Grand Master has 
been a most delightful one due in great measure to 
the kindness, courtesy, brotherly love and good- 
will extended to me, as the representative of the 
Most Worshipful the Grand Master, by every lodge 
in the district. It is with a deep sense of regret 
that I find myself approaching the close of the 
happiest and most instructive year of my masonic 
experience, and while it is true that I cannot again 
mingle with the brethren as their D.D.G.M. at the 
same time I am looking forward with keen antici- 
pation to spending many happy evenings in their 
company and of rendering to each lodge all the 
assistance I am capable of offering. 

Fraternally submitted.

TORONTO DISTRICT "B" 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada, in the province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: — 

I have the honor and pleasure of presenting 
my report on the condition of Masonry in Toronto 
"B" District for year ending June 30th, 1934. 

To the brethren of the thirty lodges comprising 
this district I wish to express my sincere apprecia- 
tion for the honor they conferred on me and my 
Mother Lodge "Georgina" Xo. 343, by electing 
me to the office of District Deputy Grand Master. 

I appointed W. Bro. E. H. Stanners as the 
district secretary. This met with the approval of 
the brethren and his assistance has been much 
appreciated. He has faithfully carried out his 
duties in a most efficient manner for which I earn- 
estly thank him. 

R.W. Bro. H. A. Miller, P.D.D.G.M. very 
kindly offered to look after the inspection of two 
lodges that I was unable to visit, and R.W. Bro. 
Frank G. McLean, D.D.G.M. "C" District in- 
spected Georgina Lodge. I express my heart felt 
thanks to these distinguished brethren for their 
assistance. 

I am pleased to report that throughout the 
entire district there appears to be an improvement 
in masonic affairs. The Worshipful Masters and 
their officers have endeavored to improve the 
attendance of their members and make the meet- 
ings interesting and instructive. 

The demands on the benevolent committees 
of each lodge have been many and they are to be 
congratu 1 ated on the work done. I found every 
lodge gave special attention to this important 
masonic dutv. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1931 263 

In every lodge the attendance of Past Masters 
in goodly numbers was noticed. Their attachment 
to their own lodge and masonry in general, com- 
bined with experience and enthusiasm has added 
much to the success of their respective lodges and 
of great help to the Worshipful Masters and 
officers. 

On the occasion of my visits to the lodges for 
the purpose of inspection, a degree was either con- 
ferred or exemplified and I am pleased to report 
that the work done was of a high standard. The 
sincere and dignified manner in which every Master 
and officer endeavored to carry out their duties was 
very impressive. Every Worshipful Master and 
officer aimed at verbal accuracy, endeavored to 
impress the candidates that there was something 
worth while in masonry, and the manner in which 
the regular business of the lodges was carried out 
demonstrated that the affairs of each lodge are in 
good hands. 

I am pleased to report that the secretaries of 
the lodges are capable officers and are very atten- 
tive to their duties and the reports of the district 
secretary indicates the books of both secretaries 
andftreasurers are in good order. 

I visited many of the lodges on the occasion 
of^their installation and investiture ceremonies, 
such work being done in many lodges by their own 
past masters and credit is due the brethren for the 
excellent manner in which these duties were carried 
out. 

Many of the lodges held Senior Wardens' 
nights which were usually well attended. These 
meetings made it possible for the brethren to get 
acquainted with each other. The friendships form- 
ed and spirit of co-operation existing between our 
1934 Masters is due in some measure to these 
frequent contacts. 



GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On December the Fourth (1933) a reception 
was tendered to Most Worshipful Brother F. A. 
Copus by the six lodges meeting in the Gerrard 
Street Temple. Following the reception to the 
Grand Master in the lodge room the brethren re- 
tired to the auditorium when a very interesting 
address was delivered by the Grand Master. 

'in March the Twenty-sixth (1934) a reception 
was tendered to the Grand Master by all the lodges 
meeting in the Yonge Street Temple. Six of "B" 
district lodges took part in this event. Many dis- 
tinguished brethren were present and the Grand 
Master gave an address which was enjoyed by all. 

I was happy to visit Canada Lodge when grand 
lodge regalia was presented to R.W. Bro. H. A. 
Miller, P.D.D.G.M. (1932-1933; and the past dis- 
trict secretary V.W. Bro. A. T. Yule and both 
expressed their appreciation for the honor received 
from the brethren. 

This district was highly honored by the 
brethren. R.W". Bro. S. E. Lambert was elected 
Grand Chaplain and R.W. Bro. W. O. Matthews 
elected Grand Registrar. These two distinguished 
members of the craft were presented with regalia 
of their office in their mother lodges Coronati and 
1 orient in the presence of a large number of breth- 
ren. 

The district was also highly honored by the 
Grand Master by appointing the following brethren 
to grand lodge offices: V.W. Bro. A. G. Corscadden, 
Imperial Lodge), Grand Sword Bearer; V.W. Bro. 
Chas. Cope, (John Ross Robertson Lodge), Grand 
Standard Bearer; V.W. Bro. W. R. Kent, (Steven- 
son Lodge), Grand Pursuivant: V.W. Bro. A. T. 
Yule, (Canada Lodge I, Grand Steward; V.W. Bro. 
G. Scott. Markham-Union Lodge;, Grand Steward. 

In their respective lodges suitable regalia was 
presented to these brethren and all expressed their 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 265 

appreciation for the honor conferred on them and 
received congratulations from the brethren present. 

During the year I endeavored to interest the 
brethren in Masonic Education, by pointing out the 
advantages, directing their attention to the refer- 
ence and circulating library arranged for them in 
Yonge Street Temple. Many of the lodges held 
meetings, nearly every lodge appointed a past 
master as chairman of this committee. To en- 
courage this work in the lodges special speakers 
were arranged for and I believe results have been 
obtained. To R.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, R.W. Bro. 
Jas. Malcolm, W. Bro. Geo. Coales, Bro. S. W. 
Alexander and many others I tender my thanks 
for their co-operation and efforts in the interest 
of Masonic Education. 

On Sunday April the twenty-ninth a church 
service for "B" District was held in St. Barnabas 
Anglican Church. A large number of the members 
were present. Many of our lodges hold church 
services and they are always well attended. 

Doric Lodge (Toronto) celebrated its Sixtieth 
Anniversary on May 17th (1934), when many of 
their members and friends were gathered together. 
The Grand Master was present on this occasion 
and a souvenir coin was given to each one present. 

In conclusion I desire to express to the breth- 
ren my thanks and appreciation for the co-opera- 
tion they have given me and their many expres- 
sions of friendship, and words of encouragement 
received during the past year and it is my happy 
privilege to report that throughout Toronto District 
"B" the utmost loyalty to our Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge prevails. 

Fraternally submitted, 
A. H. DOWNS, 
D.D.G.M. Toronto District "B".

TORONTO DISTRICT "C" 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In presenting my report on the condition of 
Masonry in Toronto District "C" I take this 
opportunity of expressing my appreciation for the 
honor bestowed upon me and my mother lodge by 
the brethren of the district in electing me to the 
important position of D.D.G.M. 

The appointment of W. Bro. E- T. Dransfield 
as District Secretary, was exceedingly popular, 
not only in Zetland Lodge Xo. 326 but in many 
other lodges also, where he is so favorably known 
for his untiring efforts on behalf of the Craft for a 
period of over forty years, and from having served 
in other branches of Masonry in the highest posi- 
tions within the gift of his brethren. His zeal for 
Masonry and fidelity to his office is reflected in his 
faithful services on every official visit both within 
and without the district. 

During the year I was signallv honored by the 
D.D.G.M.'s in Toronto Districts' "B" and ""D", 
when R.W. Bro. A. H. Downs and R.W. Bro. H. 
H. Sawdon requested that I should officially inspect 
the work of their respective lodges, Georgina Lodge 
Xo. 343, and Union Lodge Xo. 118. To me, these 
visitations were the jewels in the perfect setttings 
with the other previous stones in District "C" and 
which combined, complete the ever increasing 
circle of "Friendship and Brotherly Love" which 
was the keystone of all visitations whether official 
or social. 

"Friendship like a noble river 
Rolls its peaceful waters by; 
Tempest tossed and troubled never, 
Gliding to Eternity." 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 267 

The District Secretary in the fulfillment of his 
duties, which included the inspection of lodge 
records, reported that in no case did there appear 
to be any laxity on the part of secretaries but on 
the contrary, some have designed special forms 
which made valuable information very accessible. 
The secretaries, as a body are men of great in- 
tegrity with a keen sense of responsibility, of un- 
flagging interest in their respective lodges and an 
understanding of the important part they play in 
maintaining the high efficiency of our Grand body. 

May I pay tribute to my predecessor in office, 
R.W. Bro. J. Roy Herrington whose genial per- 
sonality and kindly disposition left such an im- 
pression among his brethren that my path was 
made smooth and my burden light. He upheld 
with dignity and thoroughness the very highest 
masonic ideals and which will undoubtedly be 
reflected throughout the district in the years which 
follow. It was my pleasure to present and invest 
him with the regalia of his office on September 
20th, 1933 at a meeting held by Richmond Lodge 
No. 23, at Richmond Hill. 

For the purpose of inspection, it was my 
privilege to witness the working of all three degrees, 
and I am satisfied that the officers appeared to feel 
that the candidate was the central figure and that 
the ceremony was entirely for his benefit. The 
examination of the candidates before the second 
and third degrees also showed that the officers were 
very particular in the instruction of the candidates, 
but on too few occasions did I see or learn of the 
examination of a Master Mason. The lodges 
which practise this are to be highly commended 
and if it could be made universal, there is little 
doubt that those who receive our degrees would go 
out into the world with greater confidence and a 
higher regard for the exactness of the institution. 

Too much stress cannot be given to the very 
great danger that lurks, unseen and unsuspecting, 
behind the assumption that the success or failure 
of our lodges depends solely upon the number of 



268 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUA!, COMMUNICATION 

candidates admitted to membership during the 
year. The admission of candidates indicates growth 
but we must not let the dollar out-balance better 
judgment in these days of drought but let the 
growth be healthy, permanent and satisfactory by 
including only those who are likely to appreciate 
Freemasonry and then confer the degrees in their 
entirety, even to the Charges. Hurriedly made 
Masons seldom display a lasting interest and un- 
doubtedly, strength gradually attained is more 
vigorous and dependable if time is given to ponder 
and reflect. 

Throughout the district it was very pleasing to 
see that all masters were endeavouring to retain 
the interest of the Past Masters. The splendid 
service rendered by these faithful workers, is re- 
flected in the high standard of excellence attained. 
The blending of experience with honest endeavor 
makes for additional vigor and efficiency, because 
it is the work of love and pleasure, no less than 
duty. 

One of the most vexatious problems of the con- 
stituent lodges at the present time is the collection 
of arrears of dues and the coincident difficulty of 
segregating the worthy from the uninterested. 
The work however is progressing and as a result 
it is hoped that the Craft will emerge with a better 
understanding of the qualities which all applicants 
should possess. As the husbandman trims and 
prunes all dead wood from the trees to keep them 
healthy and to control their proper growth, we may 
assume that those lodges which have been and are 
careful in dealing with this difficulty and get rid of 
the uninterested member, will be in a healthier 
condition for so doing, but it is regrettable that 
this should be so. 

On December 4th, 1933 the 6 lodges meeting 
in the Gerrard Street Temple tendered a reception 
to our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother 
Frank A. Copus, and which was enthusiastic and 
permeated with loyalty. R.W. Bro. A. H. Downs 
D.D.G.M. Toronto District "B" presiding. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 209 

On March 26th, 1934 the 25 lodges meeting in 
Yonge vSt. Temple tendered a reception but ap- 
parently because of a severe snow storm the meet- 
ing was not well attended. The four Toronto 
D.D.G.M's took active parts. This meeting was 
held under the auspices of Harmony Lodge No. 
438. 

On April 11th, 1934, the 13 lodges meeting in 
York Masonic Temple tendered their reception 
under the auspices on Metropolitan Lodge No. 542. 
In this Temple, three Toronto Districts are repre- 
sented and of a consequence the D.D.G.M's of 
"B" "C" and "D" officiated. 

On May 2nd, 1934, the rural lodges in Toronto 
District "D" tendered their reception at Schom- 
berg where R.W. Bro. H. H. Sawdon presided. 

As a matter of record it is interesting to note 
that although the former two meetings were made 
complimentary to the members, by an assessment 
on their respective lodges, the meetings were 
poorly attended while in the case of the latter two 
meetings, they were made self sustaining, and 
where the lodge and banquet rooms where taxed 
to capacity. 

At all of these meetings our Grand Master 
delivered inspirational and appealing addresses, 
bringing home the truths that "Masonry appeals to 
men of vision, and that "There can be no success 
based on anything but truth." 

Many interesting and devotional church ser- 
vices were held by lodges in the district and which 
were largely attended. 

King Solomon's Lodge No. 22, Riverdale, 
Presbyterian Church; Richmond Lodge No. 23, 
Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church; Simcoe Lodge 
No. 79, Bradford United Church; Patterson Lodge 
No. 265, Willowdale United Church; North Gate 
Lodge No. 591, College St. Baptist Church; All

The honour of invitation and the pleasure of 
attending Divine Services in the other Toronto 
Districts, was also mine. 

Behind our institution is a "divinity that shapes 
our ends" and assist us to turn the rough ashlar 
into the finished stone. 

The benevolent work of the lodges is very 
commendable and fully up to the previous year. 
This is carried out through the medium of special 
Benevolent Committees and in some cases the 
Broken Column Fund. In certain cases, I am 
sorry to report that year after year, this very im- 
portant obligation appears to be neglected even 
although distress is apparent, while others realizing 
the need and appreciating the privilege have in- 
creased their grants by a considerable amount. 
Some lodges have formed an Employment Com- 
mittee for the purpose of assisting in securing 
work for those of their members who have been so 
unfortunate as not to have steady employment. 

There were many pleasant and profitable 
evenings spent at Past Master's Nights, Installa- 
tion Ceremonies, Senior Warden's Nights Annual 
At Homes, and special nights of varying interest 
all of which do much to prosper our united en- 
deavor. 

Reports, of great interest and well worthy of 
attention and study have been received from the 
Central Masonic Bureau and the Masonic Board 
of Relief both of which are doing a commendable 
work. 

Masonic Educational work is taking hold and 
most Masters are deeply impressed with its im- 
portance and significance. Many Educational 
nights were held and all lodges have appointed a 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 271 

chairman and made application for the "Manual 
for Instructors" on the First degree. I feel deeply 
indebted to R.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop for his 
assistance throughout the year and sincerely hope 
it will not be long until his aspirations in con- 
nection with the three degrees, are realized. 

There is the same spirit of harmony and 
friendliness now prevailing as has characterized the 
district for many happy years. This is evidenced 
by the continual interchange of fraternal visits and 
the association of individual members with each 
other, not only within the district but far beyond 
its borders, including lodges of our American 
cousins to the South. I sincerely hope that this 
spirit of friendship and unity may long continue. 

Among the strongest links of our Masonic 
Chain, is the Link of Friendship. On many 
occasions I have had the pleasure and privilege of 
associating with my colleagues in office. R.W. 
Bro. Wm. H. Tuck in "A" district. R.W. Bro. 
Albert H. Downs, "B" and R.W. Bro. Herbert 
H. Sawdon, "D". Not the least noteworthy was 
when R.W. Bro. Sawdon inspected the work of the 
officers of my mother lodge Zetland, where his 
timely remarks upon the subject of Masonic 
Symbolism were greatly appreciated and warmly 
received. 

It is with regret and sadness I record the 
passing of a number of distinguished members of 
the Craft in this district: — 

V.W. Bro. Wm. Bain, initiated August 5th, 

1880, Master of Rehoboam Bodge No. 65, 1889. 

Appointed Grand Steward 1927, deceased Julv 
21st, 1933. 

V.W. Bro. Samuel Brown, initiated into Wilson 
Bodge No. 86, March 18th, 1879. He occupied the 
East in 1885 and 1887 and for 39 years filled the 
post of Treasurer with dignity and exceptional 
capability. Past Grand Steward. Died February 
16th, 1934, and buried with Masonic Honors. 



272 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

W. Bro. Thomas Pierdon, initiated February 
21st, 1882 into Wilson Lodge No. 86 and was W.M. 
in 1891. Died January 28th, 1934, and buried with 
Masonic Honors. 

W. Bro. Edward J. Redpath, initiated October 
24th, 1901 into Harmonv Lodge, No. 438, and was 
W.M. in 1909 and wa's also the first W.M. of 
Unity Lodge No. 606 in 1922. He had also many 
other Masonic affiliations and served the craft 
with distinction and untiring effort. He lost his 
life bv drowning in the Bav of Quinte on Sep- 
tember 4th, 1933. 

W. Bro. Sir Arthur William Currie, an affili- 
ated member of Zetland Lodge No. 326. A Can- 
adian soldier and educator, born December 5th, 
1875 at Napperton, Ontario. Initiated by Van- 
couver Lodge No. 2, Victoria B.C. During the 
European War he commanded the First Canadian 
Division from 1914 to 1917. In the latter year he 
became Commander-in-Chief of the Canadian Corps 
in France. Died November 30th, 1933. 

"Leaves have their time to fall 
And flowers to wither at the north winds 

breath, 
And stars to set, 

But thou hast all seasons for thine own, 
. O Death." 

The memory of the many courtesies extended 
and the pleasant elevating associations of my 
brethren shall ever remain green with me and I 
bespeak for my successor the same generosity of 
thought and action which has made my many 
journeys so enjoyable.

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren : 

I have the honor to submit herewith my report 
on the condition of Masonry in Toronto District 
"D" for the year 1933-34. 

My first official duty after being elected was to 
appoint a District Secretary, and I was fortunate 
in having associated with me W. Bro. A. H. Mac- 
Leod in that capacity during the year. 

Although at the same time he occupied the 
Chair of King Solomon in Union Lodge, he found 
time to accompany the D.D.G.M. on practically 
all his official visits, and discharged his duties in a 
highly efficient manner His comradeship was 
delightful and our relationship has been more 
closely united through our associations. 

On Oct. 6th it was my pleasure and privilege 
in War Veterans Lodge to present to R.W. Bro. 
C. H. Reeve his regalia as P.D.D.GM.; the gift 
of the district which he served and represented so 
successfully during his term of office. R.W. Bro. 
Reeve in turn presented regalia to V.W. Bro. F. J. 
Johnson, his zealous and capable secretary. 

I have been particularly delighted to find in 
my visits with the brethren their loyalty to the 
Grand Master and the Grand Lodge. The spirit 
of comradeship and the harmony which prevails is 
manifested by the inter-associations of the officers, 
the Master, and the Lodges as units and individuals. 
During the year I visited every lodge once and 
the majority two or three times and I have been 
impressed by the virile condition of Masonry in this 
district. The lodges are staffed with enthusiastic 
officers who conduct their work with efficiency and 



274 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

dignity which cannot fail to make the necessary 
impression upon the candidate. They are supported 
by a loyal body of Past Masters, and I find that 
the secretaries and Treasurers are very exacting 
in their records, and accounts are well kept. 

For the purpose of eliminating repetition I 
shall render this report in a general way dealing 
briefly with the Work, Benevolence, Masonic 
Education, Attendance, and Financial Conditions, 
from observations as made during the past year. 

WORK. — On the whole quite uniform and 
efficient. In many cases the work was so nearly 
perfect that of necessity one could only approve. 
Many of the lodges have their own choir and some 
a well balanced quartette which greatly assists in 
the ceremony, but most pleasing to note through- 
out the whole district was the attendance and 
participation of the Past Masters, as well as the 
enthusiasm of those in the body of the lodge. 

BENEVOLENCE.— Of necessity during the 
past few years the Lodges have been called upon to 
render financial assistance. Many of the lodges 
have established Local Benevolence Funds from 
which donations are made, some have given assist- 
ance by private subscriptions, while others have 
remitted dues or detracted from the General Funds. 
In no case has benevolent work been neglected, 
and in some lodges well up to $800 has been spent. 

MASONIC EDUCATION.— In conjunction 
with the suggestion of the Committee on Masonic 
Education as found on Page 331 of the proceedings 
of Grand Lodge 1933, I am pleased to state that 
every lodge in District "D" has shown some inter- 
est. In the majority of the lodges Educational 
Committees were formed who were given charge of 
the work. They arranged for Educational Talks or 
conducted such themselves. Early in May I re- 
quested from each lodge a report on the work un- 
dertaken. In every report it is pleasing to note 
the attendance of the brethren and the interest 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 275 

shown in the work, also the discussions following 
the instructional talks. While in previous years this 
work has fallen upon the shoulders of a small num- 
ber of Grand Lodge Officers, it is noteworthy to 
observe that during the past year those duties have 
been shared by the Past Masters of the lodges. 
Every initiate is admonished to "make a daily 
advancement in Masonic knowledge, - ' and with the 
present scheme of Masonic Education he finds in his 
own lodge every opportunity to obey this injunction. 
I feel that the lodges comprising District "D" 
have made a creditable beginning along this line. 

ATTENDANCE.— The average attendance of 
members at the regular meetings is improving. 
One lodge reports 50%, two 45%, four 40%, but 
still there are a few 25% or under. I believe that 
the close check and the personal touch have united 
to mark this increased attendance. For brother 
to know brother as a brother surely must result 
in a regular attendance of those brethren at lodge 
meetings. It was gratifying to note in some cases 
100% in the attendance of the officers of the lodge. 

FINANCIAL CONDITION.— Most of the 
lodges of this district have adopted a budget 
system, and thereby are keeping a very close 
touch on the financing of their lodge. Receipts 
are beginning to show an increase, and I believe 
with few exceptions the condition of outstanding 
dues is somewhat improved. 

During the year I attended many Masonic 
functions but of these it would be impossible to 
report individually, and unfair to report on only a 
few. Outstanding however are those which I feel 
should be mentioned: 

On Sunday evening Nov. 5th the Four Toronto 
Districts joined together for the purpose of attend- 
ing Divine Service in St. Paul's Church. Most 
Wor. Bro. F. A. Copus and over 1,200 brethren 
attended. Rt. Rev. Bishop Renison gave the 
brethren a very impressive^Masonic message. 



276 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On Sunday June 3rd in the afternoon the Four 
Toronto Districts again joined together in service 
at St. Paul's Church. This was the occasion of 
thanksgiving for one hundred years of Masonry in 
the city, and at the same time to commemorate 
the birthday of Our Sovereign. At this service 
Bishop Renison was in charge while the sermon 
was delivered by Bishop W. C. White. Most Wor. 
Bro. F. A. Copus and R.W. Bro. A. J. Anderson 
read the lessons. There were over 2,000 Masons 
present. It was a wonderful gathering. 

During the year three receptions to the Grand 
Master were tendered in the district. On March 
26th the lodges of all districts assembling in the 
Yonge Street Temple tendered a reception. On 
April 11 the lodges of all districts assembling in 
York Temple tendered a reception, and on May 
2nd the six rural lodges of the district tendered a 
reception to the Grand Master at Schomberg. 
In all cases the attendance marked the regard and 
respect in which the brethren hold the Grand 
Master. Most Worshipful Bro. Copus upon each 
of these occasions addressed the brethren in his 
sincere and impressive manner which not only 
places Masonry upon its proper high pedestal, but 
strengthens the tie which binds the brethren to- 
gether. 

At the inspection of mv mother lodge, Union 
Lodge No. 118 at Schomberg, R.W. Bro. F. G. 
McLean of District "C" kindly consented to 
officiate, for which I express to him my apprecia- 
tion. In April I had the pleasure of returning R. 
W. Bro. McLean's courtesy in visiting Zetland 
Lodge Xo. 326 where I witnessed work of a very 
high order. 

During the year there has been a very close 
co-operation among the four D.D.G.M's of the 
Toronto Districts, and I feel that from the many 
associations I have enjoyed thereby and from the 
different ideas assimilated that uniformity and 
efficiency have been promoted in our lodges. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 277 

It has given me a great deal of pleasure to 
observe attendance of visitors upon inspection 
nights. In all cases I have taken such attendance 
as a compliment both to the lodge in question and to 
myself. 

Senior Warden's Nights appealed to me as very 
useful nights. They act as a preparation to the 
Sr. Warden for the work of the Master's Chair, 
and at the same time encourage that spirit of 
friendliness which should exist among the brethren 
of the Fraternity. 

In closing I wish to thank the brethren of the 
district for the high honour which they conferred 
upon me in electing me to the office of D.D.G.M. 
My work has been made a pleasure by the hearty 
co-operation of the officers and brethren throughout 
the district, and it is my sincere hope that I may 
have transferred something to my brethren which 
may be of some help in extending the principles 
of ancient Freemasonry. 

Fraternally submitted, 

H. H. SAWDON, 
D.D.G.M. Toronto District "D".

VICTORIA DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F4& 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is with mingled pleasure and regret I come 
to the end of my year as the representative of our 
Grand Master in Victoria District. The year has 
been most instructive and interesting to myself and 
I sincerely trust of real Masonic value to all the 
officers and brethren of the district. I am deeply 
grateful to you for the many kindnesses and court- 
esies extended to me and the honour given to North 
Entrance Lodge. 

My first official duty was to appoint Bro. Fred 
Jones, District Secretary and I want to thank him 
lor the capable manner in which he carried out his 
duties and he wishes to thank the secretaries of 
each lodge for their friendly co-operation. Their 
work is most commendable. 

I have visited all the lodges in the district at 
least once and have had very successful meetings. 
The harmony that exists throughout the district is 
most gratifying. Without exception the work is 
very satisfactory and is an evidence of hard study 
and earnest effort on the part of all the officers of 
the various lodges. 

The active part taken by the Past Masters is 
to be commended. Some lodges are more fortunate 
than others in this respect. I would recommend to 
the Ruling Masters that you give each Past Master 
an opportunity to take some part in the work on 
every possible occasion. 

There has been a marked increase in the 
number of initiations particularly in the past six 
months in many of the lodges. This as well as 
creating more interest has along with the more 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 278 

prompt payment of dues left many of the lodges 
in a slightly better position financially. 

The outstanding event of the year was the 
visit of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master to 
this District. Most Worshipful Brother Copus has 
endeared himself to everyone in which he comes in 
contact by his sincerity and the outward expression 
of his personality. Each lodge in the district was 
well represented on this occasion and were many 
times repaid by the fine address given by Most 
Wor. Bro. Copus and his instructive talk to the 
Ruling Masters. 

Nineteen Past District Deputy Grand Masters 
and other Grand Lodge Officers were admitted 
along with the Grand Master and I appreciate the 
part they took in helping to make the evening a 
success. I also thank W. Bro. Mackey and the 
brethren of Faithful Brethren and Gothic Lodges of 
Lindsay who acted as hosts, leaving nothing to be 
desired. 

It was my privilege to visit Tecumseh Lodge at 
Stratford when the only son of our Grand Master 
was initiated into Masonry. I was glad that I 
found it possible to represent Victoria District on 
this interesting occasion and to again meet so many 
Ruling District Deputies and Grand Lodge Officers. 

The inspection of my own lodge was kindly 
taken care of by R.W. Bro. W. Macarthur and his 
report on the work of this lodge is very com- 
mendable. Bro. Rev. J. M. Whyte, Pastor of the 
United Church at Enniskillen gave an encouraging 
and interesting address. All the lodges but one 
being represented. 

It is rather unfortunate that it is necessary to 
make all but three visits in the last few months of 
the Masonic year. This I am of the opinion 
could be rearranged to advantage having at least 
half of the visits in the earlier part of the year. 
It being almost impossible to visit throughout the 



2>0 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Winter months. The work of the district deputy 
could be carried out more effectively if this was 
done. 

Last year Masonic Education was capably 
begun under the direction of R.W. Bro. MacMillan. 
This year on instructions from the Board on 
Masonic Education, committees have been formed 
in almost all of the lodges and with the assistance 
of the instructors this work has been reasonably 
successful. I would appeal to you to give this 
important work still closer attention. 

At the age of twenty-nine years you have 
placed in me the confidence of representing our 
Most Worthy Grand Master, and brethren from the 
depth of my heart I can only hope that I have been 
worthy of that confidence and continued the work 
so ably carried on in the past. The happy remem- 
brance of my associations with you, in the years to 
come will be one of the most pleasant recollections 
of my Masonic career. 

Fraternally submitted, 

R. J. CURRY, 

D.D.G.M. Victoria District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 281 

WELLINGTON DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honor to submit this report of the 
conditions of Masonry in the District of Wellington. 

First I wish to express my appreciation of the 
honor bestowed upon me and to repeat my sincere 
thanks to each and every brother for electing me 
to the high office of District Deputy Grand Master, 
and for the whole-hearted support which they gave 
me during my term of office. 

My first official duty was to appoint Wor- 
shipful Brother W. H. Gleiser as my secretary, and 
in doing so I was most fortunate in securing a 
secretary of such outstanding ability. His knowl- 
edge of secretarial work and his keen interest in 
the work assigned to him, was a wonderful help 
to me on the occasion of all my official visits. 

I also appointed Very Worshipful Brother F. 
Matheson as my District Chaplain. Both my 
secretary and chaplain accompanied me on every 
official visit to the various lodges of the district 
and to them I express and extend my sincerest 
thanks for the many kind services rendered me and 
for their faithfulness and assistance. 

For Educational meetings the district was 
divided into six groups. Six lectures were given in 
all and to V.W. Bro. E- Tailbv of Kitchener, and 
R.W. Bro. R. S. Hamilton of Gait, I want to 
express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for 
their assistance and efforts in going to no little 
inconvenience in preparing and putting on these 
lectures which were appreciated so much by the 
brethren who were present at these meetings. 
One regrettable feature is that not all the brethren 



282 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

avail themselves of the opportunity of enriching 
their minds with Masonic knowledge when such a 
splendid opportunity is presented to them. I 
would recommend that Masonic Education in 
some form be kept very much in the foreground 
in the years to follow. 

I cannot let this opportunity go by without 
expressing to R.W. Bro. C. O. Hemphill, to whom 
I owe so much in Masonry, my sincere thanks for 
his kindly advice and support at all times. 

My first official visit after assuming office was 
to Mercer Lodge No. 347, Fergus, on Friday, 
October 6th, 1933. There was a good attendance 
of their own members, together with a large num- 
ber of visitors from the various lodges of the dis- 
trict. A most pleasant and enjoyable evening was 
spent by all present. Worshipful Brother Cun- 
ningham and his officers conferred the first degree 
n a most efficient manner, showing the keen in- 
terest the officers are taking in their lodge. The 
secretary's books were found to be in perfect 
order, which is only what one would expect from 
V.W. Bro. George Reynolds, who is one of the 
outstanding officers of the district. Mercer lodge 
is doing good benevolent work, also is giving much 
time to, and taking a keen interest in Masonic 
Education. 

My next official visit I paid to New Hope 
Lodge 'No. 279, Hespeler on October* 10th, 1933. 
The Entered Apprentice Degree was exemplified 
in a most satisfactory and pleasing manner. While 
few candidates have been initiated in the last few 
years, the officers are well skilled in their work. 

On October 17th, 1933 I visited Conestogo 
Lodge No. 295, of Drayton. The first degree was 
exemplified by the Worshipful Master and Officers 
assisted by the Past Masters in a very satisfactory 
manner, on a very attentive candidate. W. Bro. 
C. Scarr, Secretary, is taking care of his office in 
most satisfactory manner. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 283 

Irvine Lodge No. 203, Elora, was visited 
next on October 20th, 1933. It was a warmth of 
welcome which Irvine Lodge knows so well to 
extend to visiting Masons. Wor. Bro. Brown and 
his officers conferred the Master Masons Degree on 
the candidate in a most satisfactory manner, show- 
ing the keen interest they take in Masonry. 

Affairs in Irvine Lodge are in a very satisfac- 
tory condition. 

On November 21st, 1933 I paid my official 
visit to Glenrose Lodge No. 628, Elmira, a night 
long to be remembered, as we experienced great 
difficulties in reaching our destination owing to 
weather and road conditions, covering a distance of 
ten miles in 75 minutes. W. Bro. Alex. Brandt and 
his officers exemplified the Entered Apprentice 
Degree in a very efficient manner. W. Bro. 
Brandt proved himself a most efficient Master and 
Glenrose Lodge will, I am sure, benefit greatly 
under his able guidance. W. Bro. Jarrell is a 
most efficient secretary. 

The outstanding evening of my official visits 
was to my Mother Lodge — Waterloo Lodge No. 
539, Waterloo, on December 6th, 1933. To receive 
such a royal welcome from the brethren of my 
Mother Lodge, was a real inspiration and made it 
one of the happiest evenings of my official year. 

It was a most wonderful evening and alto- 
gether 24 lodges were represented at this meeting. 
W. Bro. Hugh Rogers and his officers in a most 
efficient manner exemplified the Entered Apprentice 
Degree, not only to the satisfaction of myself but 
to the many visitors present. I know that the 
affairs of Waterloo Lodge are in a most happy 
condition which is just what one might expect 
from a lodge under the able guidance and instruc- 
tions of the worthy secretary, R.W. Bro. C. O. 
Hemphill. 

On December 11th, 1933, I had the happy 
pleasure of paving my official visit to New Do- 
minion Lodge No. 205, New Hamburg. I found 



284 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

New Dominion Lodge, under the leadership of 
W. Bro. Eby, in a nourishing condition, and am 
happy to report that New Dominion Lodge will 
make history. 

The Entered Apprentice degree was exemplified 
in a most efficient manner by W. Bro. Eby and his 
officers, who showed by their efforts that they have 
the affairs of Masonry at heart. 

A word of congratulation to the Secretary, 
W. Bro. Ingold for the excellent condition in which 
the books and records of the lodge are kept. 

Altogether New Dominion Lodge is to be con- 
gratulated on the progress they are making in 
masonry. 

On February 6th, 1934 I paid my official visit 
to Gait Lodge 'No. 257, Gait. The" work exem- 
plified was the First degree, and the manner in 
which this degree was exemplified, showed that 
the work in Gait Lodge is of a very high character. 
The books of their efficient secretary, W. Bro. 
E. Hetherington, are in excellent condition; a 
pleasing feature of the evening was the number of 
Past Masters of Gait Lodge present, and who give 
their officers and Worshipful Master such masterful 
support at all times. Masonry in Gait Lodge is in 
a very happy condition, and they are looking for- 
ward with keen interest and anticipation, to their 
new quarters in their New Temple Block. 

My next official visit was to Grand River 
Lodge No. 151, Kitchener, on February 13th, 1934. 
The officers exemplified the Entered Apprentice 
degree in a most efficient manner and although the 
Wor. Master could not be present, I know that he 
also performs his part most efficiently, having visit- 
ed with him and his officers on a previous occasion, 
when they exemplified the First degree. The books 
and finances of this lodge are everything one could 
desire and Bro. P. Fischer, Secretary is to be 
congratulated on the neatness and perfect condi- 
tion of his books. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 285 

Masonry in Grand River Lodge under the 
able guidance of Wor. Brother E. Cunningham 
need have no fear for the future. 

My official visit to Waverley Lodge No. 361, 
Guelph, on February 26th, 1934 showed satisfac- 
tory conditions in every respect. Wor. Bro. 
Kay and his officers exemplified the M.M. Degree 
in a most impressive, and efficient manner, and the 
work of the evening showed that Masonry in 
Waverley Lodge is in a very happy condition. 
The Past Masters of this lodge are a real strength 
and inspiration to the officers. Congratulations are 
due to Wor. Bro. Templeman, as a most efficient 
secretary, and the keen interest he takes in Wav- 
erley Lodge and in masonry. 

On March 9th, 1934, I paid my official visit 
to Twin City Lodge No. 509, Kitchener. The 
E.A. degree was exemplified by W. Bro. Buck and 
his officers in a most efficient and impressive 
manner, showing careful training. The impressive- 
ness with which the work of the degree was given, 
showed the keen endeavor to leave a deep impres- 
sion upon the candidate. There was a splendid 
attendance of the members and visitors. In R. 
Wor. Bro. George DeKleinhans, Twin City has a 
most efficient secretary and a pillar of strength to 
the lodge. 

I paid my official visit to Guelph Lodge No. 
258, Guelph on March 13th, 1934. The attendance 
on this occasion was one of the largest of my 
visits. After the lodge was opened in the Fellow 
Craft and Master Masons degree, Wor. Bro. 
Cooke and his officers assisted by several Past 
Masters exemplified the M. Masons degree in a 
most efficient manner on the candidate. The 
degree was put on with precision and in an impressive 
manner, and showed the keen interest the Wor. 
Master and officers take in their lodge. Their 
most efficient and untiring secretary, W. Bro. 
Sweetman is a tower of strength to Guelph Lodge 
and deserves the congratulation of the brethren. 



286 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

My next official visit was to Walker Lodge 
No. 321, Acton, on March 26th, 1934, and was one 
of the best attended meetings of the district. 
The Wor. Master and his officers exemplified the 
E.A. Degree in a most satisfactory manner, which 
showed the keen interest the officers are taking in 
their respective offices. The work given by the 
Past Masters was done in a most impressive man- 
ner and could not help but leave a most favorable 
impression on the candidate. The secretary, Wor. 
Bro. MacDonald is an excellent and efficient sec- 
retary and deserves credit for the excellent condi- 
tion his books are kept in. 

On March 27th, 1934, I paid my official visit 
to Alma Lodge Xo. 72, Gait. The attendance was 
not as good as what one could have expected, but 
might be attributed to the slippery condition of 
roads, and weather conditions. The Fellow Craft 
degree was exemplified in a manner that showed the 
officers of Alma Lodge are most efficient in their 
work. The books of their efficient secretary, R. 
Wor. Bro. Oliver are in excellent condition. 

The brethren of Alma Lodge are looking for- 
ward with keen anticipation to their New Lodge 
Room in the New Masonic Temple, which they 
hope to occupy by next fall. 

My next official visit was to Speed Lodge No. 
180, Guelph, on April 3rd, 1934. The work of the 
evening was the Master Masons Degree and same 
was exemplified in a most impressive and perfect 
manner. W. Bro. Hayward had wonderful control 
of his work, while the work performed by the Past 
Masters was done in a most impressive manner, 
and could not fail but leave a deep impression on 
the candidate. There was a splendid turn out of 
the brethren as well as a goodly number of visitors. 
W. Bro. Whetstone is a most efficient secretary. 
His books are in excellent condition and is a won- 
derful support to the W. Master and officers. 

On April 13th, 1934, it was my pleasure to 
visit officially Credit Lodge, Xo. 219, Georgetown. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 193-t 287 

It was a most wonderful and encouraging meeting, 
as no less than twenty lodges were represented and 
the lodge room was crowded to capacity- W. Bro. 
Dobson and his officers exemplified the First degree 
in a most efficient and impressive manner. The 
affairs of Credit Lodge are in a very satisfactory 
condition and in their esteemed secretary, V.W. 
Bro. Geo. Ford, they have a strong and guiding 
light and a most worthy secretary. 

I paid my official visit to Wilmot Lodge No- 
318, Baden, "on May 4th, 1934. There was a 
splendid attendance of their own members and a 
wonderful attendance of visitors, showing the 
esteem in which Wilmot Lodge is held by the dis- 
trict and from outside the district. The work as 
exemplified in the E-A. and F.C. degrees was per- 
formed in a most satisfactory manner. The fin- 
ancial affairs are in a very healthy condition. Their 
efficient and untiring secretary, V.W. Bro. A. 
Livingstone has his books in a most excellent 
condition. 

My next official visit was to Ayr Lodge No. 
172, Ayr, on May 14th, 1934. The officers exem- 
plified the Fellow Craft degree in a very satis- 
iactory manner. The affairs of Ayr Lodge are in a 
very satisfactory condition and their efficient 
secretary, W. Bro. Shaw, is to be congratulated on 
the excellent condition of his books and reports. 
Both he and R.W. Bro. Woolner are a great sup- 
port to their lodge. 

On May 18th, 1934, I paid my official visit to 
Preston Lodge No. 297, Preston, This was my last 
official visit of the 19 Lodges in Wellington district. 
This visit had been deferred from April 20th in 
view of the fact that the new renovated lodge rooms 
could not be completed sooner owing to a serious 
loss suffered through a fire in February of this year. 
It was their re-opening night and was a great 
event in the history oi Preston Lodge. The W. 
Master and officers exemplified the Fellow Craft 
degree in a very efficient manner. The condition 
of the books of the secretary, W. Bro. King is 



288 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

excellent and altogether the lodge is in a very 
healthy condition. The attendance was one of the 
largest of my official visits, being graced by visitors 
from far and near and a large number of Past 
Grand Lodge Officers. Preston Lodge, under the 
able leadership of its W. Masters, I am sure, will 
continue to prosper. 

Church Service May 27th. 1934.— On Sun- 
day afternoon, May 27th, 1934, Wellington District 
Divine Service was held at the First United Church, 
Waterloo, under the auspices of Waterloo Lodge. 
There was a splendid attendance of the brethren 
of the district, about two hundred and twenty- 
five being present. The brethren assembled at the 
lodge room at 2.30 p.m. and proceeded to the 
church where the District Chaplain V.W. Bro. 
Rev. Matheson preached a most impressive and 
inspiring sermon. 

In closing, perhaps I may be permitted to 
express my personal pride and appreciation of the 
unwavering support given to me by the Worshipful 
Master and brethren of my own lodge, my District 
Secretary, my District Chaplain and the Worshipful 
Masters and Officers and brethren of every lodge 
in the district during my term of office. The 
many courtesies and sincere expressions of welcome 
will live long in my memory and I shall always 
cherish the many true friends I have been privileged 
to make during this year. 

Through this toilsome world, alas, 
Once and only once we pass, 
If a kindness we may show, 
If a good deed we may do 
To our suffering fellow-man, 
Let us do it: when we can, 
Xor delay it, for 'tis plain 
We shall not pass this way again. 

Fraternally yours, 
H. HASS, 
D.D.G.M. Wellington District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 289 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is an honor and a pleasure to submit to 
you my report on Masonry in general, and in the 
various lodges in Western District for the Masonic 
year ending June 24th, 1934. 

Words fail to express my appreciation of the 
honor conferred upon me by the brethren of this 
district, in intrusting to me the duties of this high 
office., the dignity and honor of which I have en- 
deavoured to uphold to the best of my humble 
ability. 

My first official acts were to appoint W. Bro. 
Robt. Mitchell of Keewatin Lodge, District 
Secretary, and Bro. Archdeacon Lofthouse of Lake 
of the Woods Lodge, Kenora, as District Chaplain. 

I feel I owe both of these brethren a debt of 
gratitude for assistance and co-operation, and par- 
ticularly the District Secretary. A good secretary 
in a lodge is a key piece to success for a Wor- 
shipful Master, and the District Secretary bears the 
same relationship to the D.D.G.M. 

One of the outstanding Masonic events of our 
district was the visit paid us by the Grand Master, 
Most Worshipful Bro. Frank A. Copus on Sep- 
tember 5th, The three lodges of Kenora and 
Keewatin held a joint emergent meeting in the 
Memorial Building Keewatin, when our Grand 
Master was introduced by R.W. Bro. Bro. T. J. 
Cherry, and welcomed by the brethren, and just 
before lodge was closed the brethren availed them- 
selves of the honor and pleasure of personally 
greeting our Grand Master, and catching a glimpse 
of his kindly and genial personality. Following the 



290 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

banquet the Grand Master gave a very interesting 
and instructive address which was greatly appre- 
ciated by the brethren. This was a wonderful 
jnthering, and I wish to express my appreciation 
01 the splendid work done by the good brethren 
who had this outstanding effort in hand. 

I have visited all the lodges in the district at 
le.ut once, and have received much pleasure and 
pr / t from each visit, and I would like to thank 
ali the brethren of both Kenora and Keewatin who 
accompanied me on those visits. 

Sioux Lookout Lodge No. 518, Sioux Lookout, 
Ont. -I visited this lodge on their regular meeting 
night October 2nd. There was a good attendance 
of members and visitors, there being some twenty- 
five visitors, and no two belonging to the same 
lodge. Of the many delightful evenings that I 
was privileged to spend with my Masonic brethren, 
this one stands out, and will long be remembered 
by me. 

Keewatin Lodge No. 417, Keewatin, Ont. — 
This my Mother Lodge I visited officially on 
Nov. 3rd. There was a good attendance and visit- 
ing brethren from the Kenora Lodges. The Fel- 
lowcraft degree was exemplified by W. Bro. Holmes 
and his officers with dignity. W. Bro. Holmes was 
ably assisted by the loyal Past Masters for which 
this lodge is noted. The work of the secretary of 
this lodge, W. Bro. P. E. Baker is a pleasure to 
observe. 

Lake of the Woods Lodge No. 445, Kenora, 
Ontario. — I made my official visit to Lake of the 
Woods Lodge on Dec. 13th. As this was the 
night of the election of officers there was no degree 
work, but I have visited Lake of the Woods Lodge 
on several occasions and have witnessed the work 
done in a very impressive and creditable manner 
by the officers. The books of the secretary W. 
Bro. Boquist are in splendid shape. Lake of the 
Woods Lodge are noted at present for the number 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 29 1 

of candidates they are initiating, and if I am not 
mistaken is developing some young masons who 
some day will be real rulers in the craft. 

Pequonga Lodge No. 414, Kenora Ont. — 
My official visit to Pequonga Lodge on January 
3rd was a very pleasant one. The work of the 
evening was the conferring of the third degree 
upon a candidate that was particularly well posted. 
In this W. Bro. Duncan the Wor. Master showed 
himself to be well skilled, and his Wardens as 
well as the other officers discharged the duties of 
their respective offices in a manner that left little 
to be desired. This lodge has a great array of 
capable Past Masters who can be counted on to do 
anv part of the work at any time. This is the 
oldest, and the largest lodge in the district, and 
the prosperous growth still continues. 

Golden Star Lodge No. 484, Dryden, Ont.— I 
visited Dryden and met with an enthusiastic reception 
from the Worshipful Master W. Bro. Saunders. 
I witnessed the first degree exemplified by Wor. 
Bro. Saunders assisted by his Past Masters. The 
work was accurate and impressive. This lodge is 
noted for its hospitality, and a visitor would be 
cold indeed if he failed to feel the harmony and 
good fellowship which prevailed, it was a real 
family party, and my best wishes is that the present 
healthy condition may prevail. 

Granite Lodge No. 446 Fort Frances, Ont. — 
I officially visited Granite Lodge accompanied by 
my Father, W. Bro. J. J. House and my secretary, 
W. Bro. Robt. Mitchell on the night of May 1st. 
The work consisted of the Fellowcraft degree and 
was exemplified in a most efficient manner by 
W. Bro. A. A. Binning and his officers assisted by 
several Past Masters. Granite Lodge has a most 
proficient Master in the person of W. Bro. Bin- 
ning, this being his second term as Master, and the 
work of all the officers is worthy of much com- 
mendation, especially the secretary Bro. J. R. 



292 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Angus who keeps the records of the lodge in a first 
class order. 

Manitou Lodge No. 631, Emo, Ont. — On 
May 2nd my official inspection was made accom- 
panied by my Father, W. Bro. J. J. House, and 
District Secretary, W. Bro. Robt. Mitchell. The 
third degree was exemplified by W. Bro. Brodie 
with dignity, and in such a manner as to warrant 
the words of commendation and encouragement 
which it was my privilege to convey. I was 
afforded the pleasure of presenting to W. Bro. 
Kilpatrick the I. P.M. on behalf of the officers 
and members a beautiful Past Masters apron. 

Ionic Lodge No. 461 Rainy River, Ont. — 
I made my last official visit to Ionic Lodge on 
May 3rd. I witnessed the 2nd degree exemplified 
by W. Bro. Hirst and his officers in a highly satis- 
factory manner. The efficient secretary, Bro. 
Crackell has his books and records in splendid 
shape, and I am satisfied the success of this lodge 
is assured. There was also a goodly number of 
visitors from Osiris Lodge, Beaudette, Minn., 
which I appreciated very much. 

The secretaries of the lodges of this district 
are to be congratulated upon the uniformly high 
standard of excellence with which the records are 
kept, and the manner in which the routine work of 
a lodge that has to be done between meetings is 
carried on. The secretaries of the lodge are too 
often considered on a par with the lodge furniture, 
yet no one who has held the office of Master but 
can look back with thankfulness to the times when 
an efficient secretary stood with him and back of 
him. All honor to these brethren who carry on the 
details of our constituent lodges. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank 
every one with whom I came in contact from the 
entered apprentice to the Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master, at every turn I received the kind- 
est consideration. I am also justly proud to have 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1934 293 

had my father, W. Bro. J. J. House, who per- 
sonally gave me the three degrees, installed me in 
the Masters chair, accompanied me on all of my 
official visits. 

Permit me to say that the condition of ma- 
sonry in Western District is all that can be ex- 
pected under present conditions. The spirit of 
true brotherhood prevails in all the lodges, and at 
all the meetings the members displayed a general 
attitude of dignity in the transaction of lodge 
business, and in the conferring of degrees. 

In conclusion, I shall always look back on this 
year of close fellowship as a landmark in my life, 
and I trust I have fulfilled my duties satisfactorily 
to the brethren, and that my messages to the 
brethren have given them some real Masonic light. 

Fraternally submitted, 

C. W. HOUSE, 
D.D.G.M. Western District. 



294 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

WILSON DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Let me first of all acknowledge my thanks to 
tie brethren of Wilson District for electing me as 
the District Deputy Grand Master for the year 
193S-o4. It is an honor that I feel I have not 
filled with grace and honor that former District 
Pepaty Grand Masters have, but I have endeav- 
ced, as far as my knowledge and ability, to do the 
bist : n my power; and I leave the office with the 
feel: ig that I have made many friends that I 
otherwise would not have been able to make, and 
with the happy feeling of friends not to be easily 
forgotten. 

Let me also express my thanks to the Past 
District' Deputy Grand Masters, Worshipful Sirs 
and Brethren for the great assistance, advice and 
happy co-operation in my work during the year. 
During exceedingly severe weather, I had a happy 
following from my Mother Lodge, Oxford 76, and 
King Solomon 43, as well as from many other 
lodges in the district. 

A new feature was a District Divine Service 
held in Old St. Paul's Church, Woodstock (the 
church of the Rector Rev. John Morris, M.A., 
who, by the way, was my district chaplain). The 
speaker at this service was the Grand Chaplain, 
Rev. Albert Lambert, M.A. Although this was a 
very hot day, the service was attended by over 
three hundred Masons. 

I wish also to pay tribute to my District 
Secretary, W. Bro. C. D. McPherson, who, from 
his business ability, made to me, and the lodge 
officers valuable suggestions in the business admin- 
istration of the lodge in suggesting a financial 
committee to assist the secretary, and also an 
inventory of the lodge property. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1934 295 

I may say we had the extreme pleasure of 
finding the lodges in a healthy condition. Even in 
this extreme period of depression, when many of 
the lodges had few initiations — some not even an 
initiation — they were willing and made a successful 
effort to clear up the dues of delinquent brothers. 

In our official visits, we endeavored to institute 
the educational campaign by having various broth- 
ers address the lodges on a Masonic subject. 

There were also meetings held by the Past 
Masters Association in the different sections of the 
district, which were addressed by outstanding 
speakers on Masonic subjects. 

Last, but not least, was the visit of the Most 
Worshipful, the Grand Master, to the district in 
Woodstock on April the 15th, 1934. This meeting 
partook of the nature of a banquet at which we had 
an attendance of over three hundred. We were 
singularly honored by some Grand Officers (present 
and past). I regret that some were absent through 
illness. 

We regret to have to report the passing of one 
of our Past District Deputj^ Grand Masters in the 
person of R.W. Bro. George Naylor who passed 
to the Grand Lodge above in March and was 
buried with Masonic honors. 

At my official visits to the various lodges, some 
twenty in number, I saw the work performed in a 
uniform, able and creditable manner by the officers 
of the lodge. In all but three lodges, the First, 
Second and Third degrees were worked. In the 
three, there has been no initiation in this year but 
the lodges exemplified the work in a highly credit- 
able manner. It was not my custom to criticize 
the work in open lodge, but if I found the work 
not up to ritual, I called the officers together after 
the lodge was closed down, called their attention 
to the mistakes and made the necessary correc- 
tions. By this means, I hoped to create a better 



29fi GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

feeling in the lodge and to avoid criticism from 
within the lodge, for, as we all know, there is 
always some brother who is willing to make some 
feeling or criticism of the officers. I found great 
enthusiasm and desire to create a better knowledge 
of Masonry. 

I have thought that in the matter of educa- 
tion we would get better results by having lec- 
turers come in, than by leaving the work to the 
local master and the past masters, as many masters 
had not the time, possibly the inclination, to delve 
into Masonic literature in order to be able to 
deliver practical lectures on Masonry. 

One of the many pleasant duties that fell to 
my good fortune was the installation of the officers 
of my own lodge, Oxford 76 on St. John, the 
Evangelist day (Dec. 27, 1933) — assisted by the 
Past District Deputy and the Past Masters. 
Also the assisting at installation of King Solomon 
No. 43 officers on the St. John the Baptist day. 

I am pleased to say that the Masonic spirit 
and co-operative feeling is exceedingly good through 
the district as manifested by the great number of 
visiting brethren who attend the many meetings. 

I regret that I was unable to accept many of 
the invitations I received to visit in the other 
districts owing to my own engagements. 

I wish to acknowledge the visits of many past 
officers at the various twenty lodges I had to visit 
in Wilson district. 

All of which I respectfully beg to submit. 
Yours fraternally, 

D. J. SINXLAIR, 
D.D.G.M. Wilson District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 297 

WINDSOR DISTRICT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I have the honour to submit herewith my re- 
port on the condition of Masonry in the Windsor 
District during the past Masonic Year. I wish 
first to express my profound thanks to all the 
brethren for the unanimous election given me last 
July, when I was elected to the office of District 
Deputy Grand Master and also for the honour 
which was brought to Windsor Lodge, especially 
marking its Fiftieth Anniversary. I wish also to 
express my appreciation to Wor. Bro. John T. 
Gresty, who so willingly accepted the office and 
carried out the duties so efficiently as District 
Secretary. 

I commenced my duties with a good start by 
attending an official reception tendered me by the 
brethren of Windsor Lodge (my Mother Lodge) 
on September 8th, at which time they pledged 
their support and co-operation during my term of 
office. From the representative gatherings at all 
my meetings, this pledge was kept to the utmost. 

I have officially visited each of the nineteen 
lodges in the district as well as many subsequent 
meetings on special occasions and found the busi- 
ness proceedings being carried out in a well planned, 
business-like manner. The secretaries in most cases 
are Past Masters and are taking a great deal of 
interest in the welfare of their rspective lodges, 
thereby proving their worth and a power of 
strength to the craft in general. 

The degree work which was presented for my 
inspection, was conferred with all the precision and 
dignity one could desire, the candidates undoubted- 
ly receiving a great deal from the lessons imparted 



29S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

to them, which reflected great credit on the Wor- 
shipful Masters and officers of these lodges. On 
two or three occasions, where no candidate was 
available, and the Worshipful Master having pro- 
vided a brother to substitute for a candidate, 
I requested the elimination of the exemplification 
of the degree work. After witnessing the opening 
and closing of the lodge in the various degrees, I 
introduced directly in each lodge a Masonic Edu- 
cational feature, which proved more beneficial and 
was enjoyed much more by those present. 

I visited my own lodge (Windsor) on March 
16th and after receiving a wonderful welcome and 
witnessing the conferring of a third degree, I re- 
quested R.W. Bro. Geo. Arnott, who was paying a 
fraternal visit, to pass judgment on the work of the 
evening. He did so, declaring in a most hospitable 
manner, that the work had been carried on in a 
most able and uniform way, as was the case 
throughout the whole district. 

I visited Pelee Lodge Xo. 627 Scudder on 
October 20th, for the purpose of installing the 
Worshipful Master and investing the officers, a 
ceremony which the brethren of Pelee Island 
depend entirely on those who journey from the 
mainland to perform. At that time I suggested 
to the newly installed Master improvements he 
might inaugurate with little expense involved, which 
would have a tendency to improve the surround- 
ings and make their lodge hall a more congenial 
meeting place, and would perhaps create more in- 
terest on the part of the members, as at that time 
the officers and one or two past Masters formed the 
nucleus of the lodge attendance. On May 18th, 
I returned and paid my official visit accompanied 
by about 30 brethren and I was very much disap- 
pointed in finding little improvement and the at- 
tendance being about the same. Wor. Bro. Wm. 
Stewart, the secretary, doing everything in his 
power to overcome this state of affairs. There had 
been no new members admitted during the year. 
A number of the brethren were in arrears of dues 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 299 

and held an indifferent attitude to those in author- 
ity regarding this matter with the result that those 
who were interested were becoming discouraged. 
These brethren, isolated as they are, do not get an 
opportunity of coming in contact with other lodges 
or brethren only on these two occasions and they 
take advantage of the opportunity by doing every- 
thing at their command to make their guests com- 
fortable. Their hospitality cannot be excelled. 
I gave them kindly counsel and encouragement, 
which was followed by a Masonic Educational 
address by Wor. Bro. A. MacOuarry, also splendid 
addresses by R.W. Bros. Hillier, Thurlow and 
Crewe, D.D.G.M. (Chatham District) which left 
them viewing the situation with a more favorable 
attitude and I hope this continues so they will 
enjoy more fellowship with each other and not al- 
low the frailties of human nature to develop, 

The City lodges have all reduced their initia- 
tion and affiliation fee and also some of the County 
lodges, which, no doubt, accounts for an increase 
of new members. The Masonic Temple Associa- 
tion have a heavy load to carry regarding the 
financing of the Masonic Temple but, with a new 
budget, which has been prepared and the co- 
operation of the lodges and other considerations, 
they feel they can carry on for the time being. 
The financial condition of the lodges is not as 
strong as might be desired on account of the num- 
ber of brethren who are in arrears in their dues. 
This condition, has naturally caused an apparent 
lack of Masonic interest and decrease of attend- 
ance at meetings. The brethren have devoted 
earnest consideration and no small amount of 
anxiety is felt and every effort is being made to 
stem the tide. 

There have been very few suspensions on 
account of non-payment of dues. Encouragement 
in this respect has been given by remitting a 
portion of the arrears of dues, which can be taken 
as an act of Masonic friendship. To be convinced 
that our fraternitv in common with all human 



300 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

institutions, is now entered upon a period of re- 
gression, is to become depressed and discouraged. 
No heart has yet been created which could fight 
against the inevitable gloom which this conviction 
brings, but the picture is not so black, every cloud 
has its silver lining, every storm brings the sun- 
shine, the rain develops the budding flower. 

We have now come to the natural period of 
reaction, not only in free masonry, but in every 
element of human endeavour, signs are plentiful to 
verify this fact, less unemployment, more prompt 
payment of dues, more candidates. I believe the 
limit of national and international reaction from 
the so-called depression has now been reached and 
that we are about to again swing backwards to- 
ward a renewed period of good things. Then let 
us not be troubled at this present period of waning 
interest, attendance and decreased applicants for 
our lodges. Let us occupy ourselves in Education 
and charitable works, the better to prepare for our 
further advance in the future. 

I had the pleasure of attending an official 
reception tendered our Most Worshipful Grand 
Master under the auspices of Tecumseh Lodge, 
Stratford, accompanied by R.W. Bros. E. T. 
Howe, J. A. Wickens and Bro. J. Evans. I had 
the pleasure of greeting R.W. Bro. L. Crewe, 
D.D.G.M. Chatham District on my official visit of 
Xenophon Lodge No. 448, Wheatley, on December 
14th and again at their Divine Service on June 
10th, also at the installation ceremony of Rose 
Lodge January 10th and at my official visit to 
Pelee Lodge No. 627, Scudder on May 18th. 
There has been a great deal or fraternizing among 
the brethren of the various lodges throughout the 
district this year, which has enabled them to 
understand one another's problems, thus preventing 
them from becoming discouraged with their own 
accomplishments. 

I visited Four Square Lodge, Detroit, Mich., 
on the occasion of their Past Master's night and 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 301 

was very cordially received and introduced by R. 
W. Bro. Neil Reid, Jr. Grand Warden of the Grand 
Lodge of the State of Michigan. On May 25th 
Union Lodge of Strict Observance No. 3, Detroit, 
visited Windsor lodge and I had the pleasure of 
returning the greetings of our Grand Lodge to 
R.W. Bro. Reid who was then, Senior Grand 
Warden. 

Many special evenings were held during the 
year, one of the outstanding ones being a Military 
Night at Leamington Lodge No. 290, April 11th, 
when prominent military officers of Kent and 
Essex Scottish Regiments were present and were 
spectacular figures in their dress uniforms and 
decorations. R.W. Bro. Hillier had charge of this 
evening and raised his son to the sublime degree 
of a Master Mason. 

I drew the attention of the Worshipful Master 
of a lodge to a condition which existed, in which 
ladies of an organization not recognized by our 
Grand Lodge, were allowed to prepare a banquet 
for members of the lodge, whose banquet room 
was adjacent to the lodge room, and the voices of 
the said ladies were audible to the brethren present 
during the conferring of a degree. I, therefore, 
instructed the Worshipful Master that any prepara- 
tion of this sort must be made before or after such 
lodge meetings. 

I drew the attention of the secretary of a lodge 
who had omitted inserting in the monthly sum- 
mons, the information required regarding applica- 
tions for initiations and affiliations, vide Sections 
189-205 of the Constitution. 

Education — One of my first official acts was to 
despatch a communication to all the lodges in the 
district, requesting the Worshipful Masters to make 
requisition for the "Manual for Instructors" and to 
appoint an instructor with a strong working com- 
mittee and advising them what to teach on evenings 
set aside for this endeavour. I followed this up on 



302 GRAXD LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

each of my official visits and introduced directly 
into each constituent lodge an Educational Pro- 
gram, which, in the majority of cases (time per- 
mitting) was followed by an address along the lines 
suggested by the Grand Lodge Educational Com- 
mittee. The increased attendance and the atten- 
tion given as I went through the district, was indi- 
cative of the interest, which was being aroused. 
In all, 48 meetings have been held at which speak- 
ers who accompanied me, brought some interesting 
and instructive phase of masonry to the attention 
of the brethren. There were two or three lodges 
who did not appoint this instructor but contented 
themselves with reading extracts from the Grand 
Lodge Proceedings and the brethren of these lodges 
interested in this work, attended the meetings of 
other lodges who had. 

Windsor Lodge, with increased degree work to 
take care of, found it necessary to set aside another 
night during the month in order to do justice to 
this work, with the result that sixteen official 
meetings were held during the year under the able 
guidance of the instructor Bro. Harold Green, a 
junior officer of the lodge. The average attend- 
ance recorded at these meetings was 121. In 
addition to this eight Sunday afternoon meetings 
were held to accommodate those who could not at- 
tend the evening lectures. The total attendance 
recorded was 640. I have been ablv assisted in this 
work by Wor. Bro. A. H. McOuarry, Bros. D. S. 
MacKinnon, J. Reid and H. Green and I am 
enthusiastic with the work being done but at the 
same time recognize that the service cannot do for 
individual lodges, that which it was designed to do, 
without the co-operation of subordinate lodges. 
Mass Education is good so far as it goes and it 
accomplishes certain purposes not easily attainable 
otherwise, but the education of the individual is not 
only more effective, because of its personal and 
therefore directive application, but it results in the 
attainment of a higher average for the group or 
mass. My purpose in referring to these matters 
specifically is to emphasize my belief that the or- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 303 

ganization of each lodge is one of the most effective 
means of Masonic Education and will give the 
newly-made Master an opportunity to read and 
learn at a time when his desire is greatest and his 
interest keenest and who will, in a very short time, 
become a more useful and better instructed mem- 
ber of the craft. The co-operation of the lodges 
is deeply appreciated. I feel that as the work goes 
on there will be a greater appreciation of evenings 
of this kind, creating as they do, a greater interest 
in Masonry, an increased lodge attendance and a 
more social and friendly lodge. 

The Past Masters' Association of which I have 
the honour of being presiding officer this year, is 
undoubtedly an asset to the Masonic life of the 
district, made up as it is of Past Masters, who still 
retain an active interest in the affairs of the Craft. 
This organization commands the best interest and 
wisdom of all the lodges, as such it has a very 
great opportunity which is also a responsibility in 
interesting the Craft in the larger matters which 
concern its welfare and of leading it indirectly and 
by counsel, along the future path of advance. Its 
members are beginning to realize keenly the neces- 
sity of Masonic education, if the Craft is to serve 
the future as it has served the past and their re- 
sponsiveness to suggestions in that behalf is most 
encouraging to those who have labored during the 
past year to induce Masons to know more about 
Masonry and to do more with Masonry. This 
association sponsored a District Divine Service on 
Nov. 19th in the Windsor Masonic Temple which 
was well attended by Masons of the district and 
their families. The clergy of the different denom- 
inations took part, with Rev. Bro. F. V. Vair 
delivering a very interesting discourse on Solomon's 
Temple. This service was in addition to the 
separate divine services held by the various lodges 
in the County at different times. 

An evening of ^outstanding significance spon- 
sored by this Association was a fraternity visit of 
Past Grand^f Master John A. Rowland, K.C. on 



304 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the evening of March 20th. Dinner was served in 
the Norton Palmer Hotel to nearly 200 members 
followed by an inspiring address after which thev 
adjourned to the Masonic Temple where about 400 
Masons had gathered to hear our Grand Treasurer 
lecture on his visit to London, England, and the 
opening of Peace Memorial Masonic Temple. This 
organization has about 8 meetings during the year, 
some of which are held at different points through- 
out the district on the invitation of the Countv 
lodges, when questions of policies are discussed and 
the best of good will and co-operation enjoyed. 

We have been fortunate in not losing any of 
our Past Grand Lodge Officers during the year, al- 
though Windsor Lodge suffered the loss of its last 
Charter Member and Founder, Bro. Copeland, who 
enjoyed the distinction of being the lodge's first 
secretary, fifty years ago. 

Although at times I found the work demanding 
a great deal of my time, I have enjoyed it and at 
no time did I feel at all discouraged. It has in- 
deed been a worth-while education to me and I 
cherish the friendships it has been my privilege to 
make; their support and kindness to me in my 
short year will never be forgotten. 

In conclusion I wish- to thank the brethren of 
the district for granting me the honour of serving 
them and pass on to my successor the same loyal 
support that was extended to me. All of which is 
respectfully submitted, 

Yours fraternally, 

HAROLD BEARDMORE, 
D.D.G.M. Windsor District.

The Committee recommends that the subscrip- 
tion to the Masonic Relief Association of the United 
States and Canada be continued. 

This financial survey of our benevolent activities 
does not adequately portray our Grand Lodge benevo- 
lence for the twelve months elapsed. The year has 
brought greater responsibilities to the individual 
Mason, to the constituent Lodge and to Grand Lodge, 
in doing their share towards the relief of our worthy, 
distressed brethren and their dependants. 

The demands for assistance have been many and 
varied, and we have been almost constantly reminded 
of our obligations to the needy and distressed. The 
circumstances of many of our dependants under 
present economic conditions have emphasized the 
fact, long since apparent, that Masonic relief must 
not be limited to the giving of financial assistance, 
but, as has been said before, personal contact, advice 
and encouragement and the evidence that someone 
cares, will give the most practical expression of the 
greatest of all the Masonic virtues. 

At this time when we are confronted with every 
sort of human need and suffering, our problem is to 
have our members recognize their duty, to take a 
personal interest in the welfare of the more un- 
fortunate of our dependants, that they may realize 
in their day of trial, that there are those who have a 
sympathetic interest and earnest desire to ensure 






TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 307 

their well-being. The tendency in recent years to 
shift the responsibility from the individual to organ- 
ized effort is a most unfortunate development in our 
benevolent work. Our crying need is not more 
money for our dependants but that our members 
would realize that Masonic charity is a personal 
matter. When our benevolent activities become me- 
chanical and divorced from the personal element it 
is no longer practical or constructive Masonry. Con- 
structive Masonry has its expression in deeds of 
kindness, in encouragement, a word of counsel and 
advice, which in the lives of our dependants may 
make the difference between success and failure for 
the future. 

Your Committee is concerned with the increas- 
ing number of applications which must be declined 
each year. All these cases are carefully reviewed 
and the merits of each claim are given sympathetic 
consideration. In many instances the most casual 
survey by the lodge would have shown that the 
applicant was not in need or at least that they should 
have readjusted their living conditions to provide 
for the necessities without appealing to Grand Lodge. 

Among the many changes in our social order, 
none is more apparent than the inclination, at the 
first sign of misfortune or adversity, to look for help 
from some organized or private charity. We are not 
suggesting any criticism of the many Government 
and welfare agencies, nor do we lack consideration 
for the lot of many of our fellow-citizens of all classes 
who are victims of our present difficulties, but the 
conditions in the past few years have in many in- 
stances destroyed the ambition of the individual and 
the pride of independence. This attitude of relying 
solely on others for support has influenced not a few 
to apply for Masonic assistance. There is an im- 
pression, both within and without the fraternity, that 
our resources are unlimited, and that Masonic mem- 
bership is the guarantee of a life annuity. 

We again appeal for the co-operation of the 
Lodges, to make a more thorough investigation of the 



308 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

circumstances of the applicant, before suggesting an 
application to Grand Lodge for relief. We must not 
permit mere sentiment and the impulse of the moment 
to influence our decision. Our problem is to disburse 
our funds where the greatest good will be done to the 
greatest number. To accomplish this, sane, prac- 
tical and business methods must be applied, and we 
must protect our resources from the selfish and un- 
worthy applicant. 

While we find it necessary to occasionally raise a 
danger signal, your Committee takes a pardonable 
satisfaction in realizing that the Benevolent vork 
of Grand Lodge was probably never more efficient or 
practical. We have learned in these days of trials, 
as never before, that our benevolence is not a barren 
gesture, that our assistance is not confined to the 
giving of mere necessities of food, fuel and clothing, 

but that other things are necessary for the comfort, 
cheer and encouragement of the distressed brother. 
We must give more freely of those Masonic virtues of 
brotherly love, sympathy, service and sacrifice, that 
our benevolent ministrations may be a greater benefit 
and blessing to us all. 

All of this is fraternally submitted. 

ERNEST W. BARBER, 

Chairman. 

On motion of the Deputy Grand Master and 
R.W. Bro. E. W. Barber, the report was received

The six brethren who were present, Bros. Hughes, 
Roaf, Stutt, Ferrah and Sharp were escorted to the 
Altar, where M.W. Bro. W. N. Ponton, by request of 
the Grand Master, addressed the Veterans briefly, 
and pinned the medals on their breasts. 

Bro. J. R. Roaf asked permission to present a 
gavel to the Grand Lodge, which the Grand Master 
graciously accepted. 

SPEECHES FROM THE VISITORS 

The Grand Master called upon M.W. Bro. 
Malcolm Campbell, Grand Master of the Grand 
Lodge of Quebec, to say a few words to the brethren. 
M.W. Bro. Campbell addressed Grand Lodge briefly, 
voicing the sentiments of good-will and friendship 
existing between these two adjacent Grand Bodies. 
He was loudly applauded by the brethren. 

M.W. Bro. Curtis Chipman, Grand Master of 
the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, then addressed 
Grand Lodge, expressing his delight at being present 
and bringing messages of congratulation from the 
Grand Lodge over which he presides. 

In conclusion, he took the opportunity of pre- 
senting the Henry Price Medal to M.W. Bro. Frank 
A. Copus, as a token of the love and admiration felt 
in the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts for the Grand 
Lodge of Canada in Ontario. 

The brethren also listened with pleasure to short 
speeches from M.W. Bro. J. A. Jackson, Past Grand 
Master of the Grand Lodge of Alberta; from R.W. 
Bro. R. A. Rowlands, Grand Representative for 
Canada near the Grand Lodge of New York; from 
R.W. Bro. Lester E. Coyte, Grand Chaplain of the 
Grand Lodge of New Jersey; from R.W. Bro. J. D. 
McKechnie, Grand Marshal of the Grand Lodge of 
Massachusetts; and from Bro. Brodie, a visitor from 
the Grand Lodge of Scotland.

REPORT ON FRATERNAL DEAD 

This report was read by R.W. Bro. C. E- Kelly, 
and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master and 
R.W. Bro. Kelly, the report was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of Canada, 
A.F. & A.M., in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Board of General Purposes, through the 
Committee on the Fraternal Dead, beg to report as 
follows: — 

"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." 

In modern times we speak of thinking with the 
mind or the intellect and of the heart as being the 
source of the emotions. Nevertheless, there is a 
great truth in the above quotation just as it stands. 
If we are normal we have dominion over our thoughts. 
It is possible to choose to think just what we like, but 
our choice will be influenced by our emotions. We 
will not chooose to think thoughts that do not give 
pleasure. We will find ourselves suppressing the 
thoughts that do not please and encouraging the 
thoughts that bring satisfaction to the heart, there- 
fore, the thoughts that we make part of our lives, the 
very directing force of our lives, are the thoughts that 
our emotions influenced us in selecting and retaining. 
It is, therefore, of the greatest importance that in our 
youth we should so cultivate our emotions that they 
will be a safe guide to our thoughts. We like to 
think of pleasant things; therefore, if we like to see 
our fellowmen prosperous, happy and enjoying life, 
we will think kindly of them, we will speak kindly to 
them, and will act kindly towards them and en- 
deavour to promote their happiness. Membership 
in a Masonic Lodge gives us the opportunity to meet 
our fellows in kindly intercourse and encourages us to 
think kindly of them and prompts us to promote their 
happiness. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 311 

There is no one so safe from life's storms as the 
one who loves his fellowmen and whose heart is so 
expanded by amiability that he takes his greatest 
pleasure in thoughts that lead him to promote the 
welfare of others. It is a great possession to have a 
heart that has learned "to weep with them that 
weep, and to rejoice with them that do rejoice." A 
membership in a Masonic Lodge is an opportunity 
to train oneself in right thinking. 

It is a great training to have learned to look 
upon those that differ from you in race, in religion, 
in politics and in business without suspicion and with 
kindliness, tolerance and charity. The man who has 
learned to suppress his antipathies and to make an 
earnest endeavour to understand those who differ 
from him, has learned a lesson in tolerance and 
charity that will give him poise and stability, that 
will make him a good citizen and a good neighbour. 
We have every opportunity to develop this tolerance 
and charity in a Masonic Lodge. 

It is poetically said of our Lodges: — 

"Earth's distinctions vanish here, 
We know no race, nor sect, nor clan, 
Only the brother, tried and dear, 
Only the Mason and the Man." 

Many of the "tried and dear'' brethren that were 
with us last year are not with us at this Convocation, 
but have passed to that spiritual Grand Lodge above 
that knows no adjournment. It is but natural that 
we should miss them and that we should feel sad 
when we think that we shall meet them here no more; 
but we should feel comforted when in vivid memory 
we see their kindly faces, that they were men who had 
learned to love their fellowmen, who had in life made 
many efforts to promote the happiness of others and 
who had learned "to do justly to love mercy and to 
walk humbly with their God." Our departed breth- 
ren were men who in our Masonic Lodges had learned 
to live without bitterness and with tolerance and 
charity toward all men. We can show respect for our 
departed brethren, and pay tribute to their lives, and 



312 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

reverence to their memory by endeavouring to carry 
out the principles of our Fraternity and ennoble our 
lives by developing tolerance and ever performing 
deeds of charity and benevolence. 

"No farther seek their merits to disclose, 
Nor draw their frailties from their dread abode; 
There they alike in trembling hope repose 
In the bosom of their Father and their God." 

The following list contains the names of the Past 
and Present Grand Lodge Officers, whose deaths are 
noted on our records as having occurred during the 
past year: —

Right Worshipful Brother George H. Coo 

Fort William lost an outstanding citizen and 
the Masonic Craft lost a very enthusiastic and able 
Mason, when R.W. Bro. Geo. H. Coo, of Fort Wil- 
liam, passed to the Grand Lodge above, on December 
26th, 1933. 

In September last, M.W. Bro. Copus, R.W. Bro. 
Logan, and J. W. Maunder, called at the home of Bro. 
Coo and presented him with a Veteran's Jewel. 

R.W. Bro. Coo was born in Toronto in 1859, of 
pioneer stock. After his education in Eastern Ontario 
he became a jeweller by occupation. He was a great 
cornet player, and after moving to Fort William, he 
became the first bandmaster in that city, and became 
Secretary of the Board of Education and Clerk of the 
Third Division Court, holding the clerkship for twenty 
five years. He became a member and later Master 
of Fort William Lodge No. 415, and was elected 
D.D.G.M. of Algoma District. He was a Royal 
Arch Mason. Horticulture claimed his interest and 
he was a Past President of the Horticultural Society. 
He was a devout member of St. Luke's Anglican 
Church. His bereaved widow, one son and one 
daughter survive him. 

Right Worshipful Brother George W. P. Every 

George Washington Post Every was born at the 
farm on Post's Hill, Pickering, in March, 1880, the 
only son of David Every and Miss Nash, the latter 
being a member of the Post family, who were early 
settlers there and in Toronto, and who had so much 
prominence in the early history of Masonry. His 
education was obtained in the public school, the 
Whitby Collegiate Institute and in Pickering Col- 
lege. Later he specialized in electrical work, and in 
1912 became the Town Engineer and Hydro Utilities 
Manager in the county town of Whitby, which posi- 
tion he held with great credit until his early demise 
in October, 1933. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1934 325 

In 1903 he joined Doric Lodge, Pickering, be- 
coming Master in 1906. In 1913 he joined Com- 
posite Lodge in Whitby, where he at once took a 
lively interest in Masonry in the county town. In 
the Great War he enlisted as Captain, being Major 
in the local regiment. He went overseas in 1916 
and remained to the close, returning to his old duties 
and was given a special honour by Composite Lodge 
upon his return in January 1919. 

He was elected D.D.G.M. for Ontario District in 
the same year, and carried on his duties greatly to 
the credit of Masonry- He had a most retentive 
memory and was looked upon by all as the best 
authority on ritual and procedure in the surrounding 
territory. 

In 1932 he was elected Master of Composite 
Blue Lodge and his services were always in demand 
throughout the district and in Doric Lodge, Pickering, 
which membership he retained and always cherished, 
being the Installing Master for the latter Lodge for 
23 years. 

His work on "One Hundred Years of Masonry" 
in Whitby, is now a standard reference, and he was 
instrumental in securing the photos of nearly all the 
Past Masters of Composite Lodge. He was the 
moving spirit in the organization and formation of 
the Composite Lodge Company which purchased the 
Rice block in Whitby and fitted it up for Masonic 
offices and lodge rooms. 

Right Worshipful Brother Thomas Blackmore 

Masonry lost one of its truest sons and one of 
its most outstanding exponents on September 23, 
1933, when Right Worshipful Bro. Thomas Black- 
more, of Listowel, passed to the Great Beyond. 

He was born in Somersetshire England, on 
January 22nd, 1847, and came to Canada in 1871. 
The following year he joined the staff of the Grand 
Trunk Railway Company, retiring in 1913. Since 
1878 he had resided at Listowel. 



326 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

R.W. Bro. Blackmore was initiated into Ber- 
nard Lodge No. 225, and by his zeal and work be- 
came Master of his Lodge in 1887. In 1913 he was 
appointed Grand Steward, and in 1921 his brethren 
elected him D.D.G.M. of the North Huron District. 

He was a pillar of strength to Bernard Lodge, 
and his great knowledge of Masonry made him sought 
by all who wished to learn, and he became the tutor 
in Masonry to the younger members. 

Right Worshipful Brother Wm. H. Tudhope 

Masonry lost a staunch friend in the passing of 
R.W. Bro. Wm. H. Tudhope, who died in the Soldiers' 
Memorial Hospital, Orillia, November 14th, 1933, 
within a few days of his 70th birthday. 

As usual he had gone North with the Red Tam 
Hunt Club, of which he was the senior member. 
Seized with an attack of appendicitis, he was given 
relief by the camp physician and brought out by 
aeroplane to Orillia, where he underwent an opera- 
tion, but died two days later. 

He was born in the Township of Oro, Simcoe 
County, December 30th, 1863, and was the third son 
of the late Wm. Tudhope and Mary Reid, Scottish 
pioneers of that township. He received his education 
in Orillia, and spent his whole life in that town. He 
entered into manufacturing early in life, and was 
one of the principals in the well-known Tudhope Car- 
riage Factories, an organization which made great 
progress before the advent of the motor car. He 
was associated with other Tudhope industries in the 
last vears of his life, as Manager of Canada Wood 
Specialty Co., Ltd., Orillia. 

He commenced his Masonic career by being 
initiated into Thorne Lodge, No. 281, Orillia, May 
18th, 1885. He was Worshipful Master of Orillia 
Lodge, No. 192, in 1896, and again in 1898. He had 
the honour of initiating both of his sons into Ma- 
sonry, and of installing one of them, W. Bro. A. H 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 327 

Tudhope, as Worshipful Master of Orillia Lodge, in 
1931. The subject of this sketch was elected District 
Deputy Grand Master of Georgian District in 1916 
and was known throughout the entire district as an 
exceptionally capable authority on Freemasonry, 
and as a capital after-dinner speaker. He served as 
a member of the Board of General Purposes of 
Grand Lodge and also as Representative of the 
Grand Lodge of Vermont. He was an Honorary Life 
Member of Orillia Lodge. 

Right Worshipful Brother Benjamin Shortly

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 329 

years. He was unanimously chosen as D.D.G.M., of 
the Hamilton District filling the office with ability 
and distinction during the years 1911-1912. He took 
a keen interest in the affairs of the Past Masters' 
Association, of which he was a Past President. 
For his many valuable services to his lodge he was

School at Ottawa. He graduated from Toronto Uni- 
versity in 1891, and practised his profession of 
physician and surgeon at Stoney Creek, where he 
lived the remainder of his life. 



He was the very best type of family physician, 
and he always exemplified the highest ideals of the 
medical profession faithfully and consistently. A 
staunch friend to all who came to him for advice, his 
kindly smile was a cheer to both old and young, his 
helpfulness and tolerance endeared him to all with 
whom he came in contact. 



Despite the heavy demands of his extensive 
practice, Dr. Thompson found time to serve his com- 
munity in many ways, especially the village and 
township, for he was always in the forefront of civic 
betterment. For thirty years he was a public school 
trustee filling the office of treasurer for many years; 
was seven years on the High School Board of trus- 
tees; was instrumental with Dr. Holbrook in estab- 
lishing the visiting nurse in township schools. He was a

He attended the United Church, taking an active 
part in adult Bible Class work and study. He was 
a good Mason, a good husband, a good father, and 
Wentworth Lodge and the community at large, have 
sustained a real loss.

grasped the spiritual as well as the material side of 
Masonry, he raised the minds and hearts of his 
brethren above the mechanics of Masonry and gave 
them to see the vision of a world made happy by the 
observance of the sublime sentiments of the Order. 

So we see the boy and learn to know the man ; 
and drawing an illustration from nature, we may 
say, with the poet: 

"Leaves have their time to fall, 

And flowers to wither in the North wind's breath, 
The stars to see but all, 

Thou hast all seasons, for Thine, O Death".

R.W. Bro. Robert J. Gardner, M.D., CM.,

It was with regret we chronicled the death of 
Robert J. Gardner, M.D., CM. F.R.C.S., Past D.D.

R.W. Bro. Geo. Naylor 

Our late brother, R.W. Bro. George Xaylor, was 
born in Ulster in 1878. He came to Canada with his 
parents at a very early age to settle at Ingersoll. 
Here he grew up and eventually took a position in 
a gent's furnishing establishment as salesman, which 
position he stuck to until the death of his employer, 
when he established a similar business of his own 
which he carried on until a few years ago, when he 
disposed of his business here and sought a wider 
field of activity in Detroit, only returning to Ingersoll 
when his health failed him. 

R.W. Bro. Xaylor was one who liked to take his 
fellows as he found them and form his own opinions 
without regard to what rumour said. Early in life 
he conceived a respect and liking for Masonry and 
ioined King Hiram Lodge Xo. 37, on Februarv 26th, 
1904. 

His zeal for Masonry and his outstanding skill 
in the Masonic art soon marked him as a man who 
would travel a considerable way in that society. He 
was elected to the junior office of this lodge, and on 
December 27th, 1907, was installed as W.M. Three 
years later, in 1910, Bro. Xaylor was elected as D.D. 
G.M. of Wilson District, a position which he filled 
with credit to himself and a vast widening of the 
circle of his Masonic friendships. 

The members of King Hiram Lodge had come to 
look to Bro. Geo. Xaylor to settle their most difficult 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1931 335 

situations, for they could always rely on his rugged

his Mother Lodge that will not easily be repaired.

Fearman Packing Co., after which he was engaged 
by Mr. Thomas Hazel, one of the leading grocers of

W.M. the lodge had one of the most successful years 
of its history. He was elected Treasurer of the lodge

endeared himself to the hearts of the members and 
brethren in general by his indefatigable zeal and 
interest in the Craft that in 1924 he was elected to the 
honourable position of District Deputy Grand Master 
of Hamilton District "A". 

His interest in Masonry which seemed to be a 
ruling passion in his life, and his fidelity to his lodge 
will be an inspiring memory to his brethren and 
members of the Order with whom he came in contact 
during his Masonic career. 

He was an active member and worker on the 
Board of Management of the First United Church, 
and for many years took a prominent part in the 
interest and welfare of the church. He died suddenlv

ternity in the Hamilton Districts A and B.

same on the expiry thereof. 

This Committee recommend to Grand Lodge 
that authority be vested in the Grand Treasurer, the 
Grand Secretary and the Chairman of the Board of 
General Purposes to represent, and act for and in the 
name of Grand Lodge on any Committee of Bond- 
holders of any Municipality or Corporation in the 
securities of which Grand Lodge may from time to 
time be interested, and to accept any proposed com- 
promise refunding or any other adjustment as in their 
discretion may be in the best interests of Grand 
Lodge. 

This Committee recommend to the Board of

retaining of such designation of the separate and (or) 
combined funds as will satisfy any testamentary be- 
quests under wills, which may hereafter become 
operative and as considered acceptable to brethren 
interested in the respective funds. 

A careful perusal of the reports of the Grand 
Treasurer from year to year discloses the results 
of care and discretion exercised by your executive 
officers in the investment and re-investment of funds 
from time to time. Safety of principal has been com- 
bined with highly remunerative returns. The 
present downward trend of interest rates payable by 
banks and financial institutions, and available on 
high-grade bonds, indicate reduced returns to Grand 
Lodge as present investments mature and as conserva- 
tion of all funds is highly desirable, a note of warn- 
ing may not be out of place at this time.

REPORT ON GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS 

The report of the Board on Grievances and 
Appeals was presented by R.W. Bro. Alex. Cowan, 
and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master and 
R.W. Bro. Cowan was received and adopted. 

The Committee on Grievances and Appeals 
recommended that no portion of the report be 
printed in the Proceedings, which recommendation 
was adopted. 

REPORT OF THE BOARD ON THE 
CONDITION OF MASONRY 

The report on the Condition of Masonry was 
read by R.W. Bro. the Rt. Rev. Chas. A. Seager, and 
on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, seconded by 
R.W. Bro. Seager was received and adopted. 



350 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & 
A.M. of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir: 

Your Committee begs to report that the Condi- 
tion of Masonry throughout the Jurisdiction is, in 
its most important aspects, highly satisfactory. 

A perusal of the reports of the District Depiity 
Grand Masters throughout the Jurisdiction reveals 
many aspects of our Masonic Craft of a highly en- 
couraging nature. Your Committee summarises 
them as follows: 

1. We feel it again incumbent upon us to bear 
testimony to the great diligence and efficiency of the 
District Deputies. An illustration of their activities 
mav be taken from one of the reports as follows: 

"I officially visited all the Lodges in the 
District once, as well as attending sixty-eight 
other Masonic engagements during my term of 
office. I also attended the Installation of Wor- 
shipful Masters, and the Investiture of Officers 
in all the lodges of the district officiating at 
three of these ceremonies." 

This quotation is typically representative of the 
great diligence of these most important District 
Officers. In addition, there is revealed in their 
reports a zeal and zest in the performance of their 
functions which must have been infectiously inspiring 
in its effect upon the Lodges in their Jurisdictions. 
There is an enthusiasm in the cause which cannot but 
stimulate greatly the Officers and Members of all the 
Lodges. 

2. Educational. While we rejoice in observing 
in the reports very clear evidence that the number of 
initiations has notably increased, and that our 
new brethren are men of the highest character, it is 
still true that the number of initiations is relatively 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 351 

small. This, of course, is regrettable, but under the 
circumstances unavoidable. The effect of it, on the 
other hand, has been very stimulating in other direc- 
tions, particularly in causing the members of the 
Craft to look inward upon themselves and their 
organization for impetus and activity. It thus has 
come about that the philosophical aspect of our Craft, 
its true meaning and significance have been 
brought into prominence. It may be said that it was 
a providential thing that the movement for Masonic 
Education, developed so ably by R.W. Brother Dun- 
lop and his Committee, coincided with a period of 
financial depression. It has given an opportunity 
for a wholesome introspectiveness and desire for 
deeper knowledge which circumstances have de- 
veloped in the brethren. We cannot recall a single 
District Deputy's report in which reference is not 
made to Masonic Education. In hundreds of Lodges 
committees have been formed and the work is pro- 
ceeding, the effects of which cannot but be salutary 
in the extreme. True, it is evident in some reports 
that there is not the interest in it in some places that 
the occasion warrants; nevertheless, on the whole a 
very real movement is going on throughout the 
Craft in this direction. It is evidenced in such things 
as an increasing thoughtfulness on the part of the 
brethren — a comment found in one of the reports. 
The high order of the addresses listened to is com- 
mented upon in another; more than one refers to the 
"deluge of questions" asked District Deputies on 
various occasions. Such things indicate a quickening 
interest in the significance of the Craft itself which is 
most hopeful. We are sure that R.W. Brother 
Dunlop and his colleagues will feel amply rewarded 
for their self-denying labours. The only peril we can 
see in this connection is a possible dying away of the 
newly quickened interest in this great matter, but 
we are sure that District Deputies and Past Master's 
Associations, as well as Masters and Wardens of the 
Lodges, will watch this tendency should it arise, and 
take steps to correct it. 

3. The reports indicate a really extraordinary 
measure of harmony throughout the Jurisdiction . 



352 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Men find in Masonry a moral strength and fellow- 
ship, human and divine, which is a welcome stimulus 
in the trials of the times through which we are passing. 
Sympathy for brethren in distress also has been in- 
creased from the same cause, and the impulse of 
fraternal relationship grows more and more strong 
in consequence. Thus in this respect as well as in 
the former, the difficulties of the times have brought 
about salutary results. 

4. It is probably from the same cause that your 
Committee is able to report a great interest in at- 
tending Masonic Church Services. This is particu- 
larly the case with District Services. This more or 
less new development is distinctly in line with the 
Masonic spirit. The effect upon the brethren of 
large numbers gathered together for this high pur- 
pose cannot but be excellent in its fruits. Further, 
the value of such massed public witness to the basic 
Landmark of Masonry, viz., faith in God, cannot but 
be impressive. There is always a danger, of course, 
that Masonry may tend to become a substitute for 
religion. Such a tendency is contrary to the spirit 
of the Order which is, first, to place itself under the 
aegis of the Church as a testimony of its desire to 
co-operate in all efforts to stimulate the morale of our 
community, and, secondly, to recognize that re- 
demptive element in human life which, of course, is 
to be found only there, and without which moral ideals 
are bound to be unfruitful. 

5. It is regrettable that large amounts of money 
are piling up from the non-payment of dues This 
is mainiy caused, of course, by the circumstances of 
the times, which have bi ought it about that many 
of the brethren are quite unable to meet their finan- 
cial responsibilities. We find reflected in the reports 
that true Masonic consideration is invariably ex- 
tended to such cases. It is, of course, a genuinely 
Masonic benevolent act to remit these dues where 
circumstances absolutely prevent their payment. 
There is, nevertheless, as indicated in some of the 
reports, another cause for this situation. A few 
years ago, when times where good, applications for 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1931 353 

membership were multitudinous; large numbers of 
people became members of the Craft, perhaps with- 
out fully realizing their responsibilities. In this con- 
nection your Committee thinks that we have to con- 
sider a definite shrinkage of membership in the 
Order. Such cases of course, should be dealt with, 
after consideration, summarily. 

One significant feature in this connection in the 
reports, however, is that where the matter is ener- 
getically attended to and definite plans of campaign 
laid to secure dues before arrears are too great, good 
results have accrued. There should be no policy of 
"drift" in this important matter. Businesslike 
methods generally secure results even under the most 
adverse conditions. Your Committee fears that they 
are not always in evidence. 

While speaking of such a matter, it will not be 
irrelevant to note that not only is economy being 
widely observed throughout the Craft, but that care- 
ful budgeting of Lodge accounts and needs is re- 
flected in the reports. This cannot but have a per- 
manently salutary effect. The whole situation is 
leading to a much more careful administration of the 
financial affairs of the Lodges. Thus once more a 
satisfactory element in the condition of Masonry is to 
be noted. 

6. One matter of relatively small detail is re- 
ferred to in some of the reports, and seems to your 
Committee to be worth mentioning here. Emphatic 
criticisms are found in some of the reports of the 
so-called "Writing Test". While recognizing that 
this Test is constitutional, your Committee cannot 
but agree with these strictures. The Test is over and 
over again an occasion of conduct which is absolutely 
unmasonic in character; rough buffoonery is alien to 
the spirit of Masonry, particularly when directed 
against a Brother, however innocently in intention. 
One report advocates that the Grand Master consider 
this particular matter with a view to its elimination. 
Your Committee underwrites the suggestion. Long 
experience in this connection with this matter seems 



:j.54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

to us to show that admonition and direction are not 
sufficient; the human instinct for horseplay finds here 
an irresistible temptation. 

7. Lastly, your Committee feels impelled to make 
reference to the lofty influence which you yourself, 
Sir, as Grand Master, have exercised throughout the 
Jurisdiction. Your strong emphasis upon Masonic 
ideals and conduct, your earnestness of spirit, the 
thoughtfulness and depth which run through your 
utterances, and your personal reflection of Masonic 
virtues, have been highly stimulative in character, 
and most welcome to the Crait. We feel that you 
will not find it in your heart to condemn this refer- 
ence to yourself. 

We do so, of course, not only on personal grounds, 
but because it is of the utmost importance that all 
Masons, particularly those holding official positions 
in Grand Lodge or otherwise, shall be high-minded 
men, above the petty passions and little pride so 
prevalent in human society, and moved by noble im- 
pulses toward noble ends. Only so can Masonry 
function as it is meant to do in a human society in 
which its virtues are strangely and tragically absent. 
Here lies the opportunity of our Order; let us, in that 
spirit of moral responsibility to the Supreme Being, 
which is the soul of our Craft, rise to it, witnessing 
to a distracted, torn and bewildered world, that the 
ways of God and the path of right, and the spirit of 
love, are the keys to human happiness both here and 
hereafter. 

Your Committee submits this report to you, 
Sir, and through you to Grand Lodge, with every 
expression of respect and obedience, and subscribe 
themselves, 

Yours fraternally, 
C. A. SEAGER, 

Chairman. 



TORONTO. OXTARIC. 1934 33.". 

REPORT ON MASONIC EDUCATION 

The report of the Board on Masonic Education 
was presented by R.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop, and was 
duly received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge, of A.F. & A.M., 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Masonic Education, com- 
posed of R.W. Bro. W. J. Dunlop (Chairman), M.W. 
Bro. J. A. Rowland, M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel, 
M.W. Bro. W. S. Herrington, R.W. Bro. W. M. 
Logan, R.W. Bro. J. A. Dobbie, and R.W. Bro. J. A. 
McRae, reports as follows: 

In Masonic Education the work of the year has 
not been spectacular, but anyone who reads the re- 
ports of the District Deputy Grand Masters will 
agree that it has been substantial. Apparently, Ma- 
sonic Education has become a recognized part of the 
regular work of most of the Lodges. Few, if any, 
of the Lodges have done nothing; almost all of them 
have done a good deal; many have exerted them- 
selves to carry out in full the programme suggested 
a year ago by your Committee. That programme 
was three-fold — the Lodges were asked to study the 
Proceedings of Grand Lodge for last year, the history 
of Grand Lodge and the material supplied in the 
Manual on the First Degree. Some began with one 
section, some with another, but in most cases the 
curriculum, though a large one, was fairly well 
covered. In many instances, it was particularly well 
done. The Chairman of the Committee had the 
privilege of conducting educational meetings in 
Chatham, Timmins, North Bay, Listowel, Waterdown 
and some other centres and of seeing at first hand 
evidences of the general thirst for Masonic knowledge, 
but he was not able to accept all the invitations re- 
ceived. That the work done this year has greatly 
stimulated reading of Masonic books the report of 



356 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNAl L COMMUNICATION 

the Committee on the Library will amply demon- 
strate. 

When the year was a little more than half over, 
the members of your Committee had a feeling that 
the work was not progressing as well as it should. 
In the absence of definite and specific information, 
they concluded that the lodges were growing weary 
in well-doing. But a letter of enquiry sent out to 
the District Deputy Grand Masters brought replies 
which dispelled this view and showed that Masonic 
Education was by no means being neglected; on the 
contrary, that it was being pushed forward in most 
of the districts zealously and even enthusiastically. 
It was found that the District Deputy Grand Masters 
were, in most cases, doing some of the work them- 
selves and, in all cases, were stressing the importance 
of it on every appropriate occasion. Some sent 
questionnaires to their lodges asking for the number 
of educational meetings held, the names of those in 
charge of such meetings, the number of brethren in 
attendance and the topics discussed. The answers 
to these questions make interesting reading. Not 
compulsion, but the stimulus of encouragement was 
the plan of attack. 

To the secretary of each Lodge a circular was 
sent in December, through the Grand Secretary's 
office — a circular in which there was outlined a sug- 
gested method of dealing in study classes with M.W. 
Bro. Herrington's book, "The History of the Grand 
Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario." 

At least three years more, probably four, will 
be required to lay, broad and deep, a solid founda- 
tion for Masonic Education in this Grand Jurisdic- 
tion. Our first year was spent in investigation, the 
second in demonstration by means of a few large 
meetings, the third was given to group meetings in 
the districts, and the fourth (the one now closing) 
was devoted to substantial work in the individual 
lodges, the instruction being confined so far as pos- 
sible to Masonic history and to the symbolism of the 
First Degree. Xext year, the one before us, should 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 357 

be devoted to a study of the Second Degree and the 
two after that, to the lessons and the symbolism of 
the Third Degree. By that time, one may venture 
confidently to predict, Masonic Education will be as 
truly a regular function of our lodges as now is the 
conferring of degrees or the routine business of a 
monthly meeting. 

Your Committee has not been able to complete 
the preparation of a Manual on the Second Degree 
for the use of instructors. With the assistance of 
several erudite brethren the manuscript of such a 
manual was compiled and was passed around for the 
perusal of the members of the Committee. But the 
opinion of the majority was that the material was 
too "high-brow" (whatever that means), too mystical 
in places, that it was "over the heads" (another ex- 
pression of mysterious meaning) of most of those who 
would be expected to use it. A well-skilled brother, 
versed in Masonic lore, may with ease and grace, by 
the sheer power of his personality, interest his hearers 
in a highly technical treatise on some Masonic topic 
and they may understand his meaning and greatly 
enjoy his lectures; but to ask some other man, less 
gifted in that respect, to take that same treatise in 
cold type, to assimilate it, to make it his own, and 
then to interest his hearers in it is quite another 
matter. The membership of our lodges is composed 
of hard-headed, practical business men, equally hard- 
headed and practical farmers, professional men, 
artisans, men of all walks of life; and Masonic in- 
struction, to meet the requirements of all, must be 
interesting, and must be of such a character that it 
will inspire them to read for themselves. Therefore 
your Committee has decided that the second manual 
must be written by one author only and that it must 
be so written that all members of any lodge can under- 
stand it easily and can assimilate it without difficulty. 
It is hoped that such a manual (a book for students 
and not for scholars) can be prepared for the use of 
instructors before November of this year. 

From what has been said it will be realized that, 
though the year has brought its problems, it has been 



358 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

a year of achievement. Much has been accomplished. 
Good progress has been made. 

What of the year ahead 5 Probably there will 
be more applicants for admission to our Lodges; 
therefore, there will be more time to be spent in con- 
ferring degrees and less time for formal study and 
discussion. Revival of activity of the conventional 
sort will necessitate rather different procedure in 
Masonic Education. 

In view of changing conditions, your Committee 
recommends certain changes in organization. Not 
that we would take the responsibility for Masonic 
Education away from the individual lodges. The 
task is always one for the lodge. But we see the 
necessity for the appointment of supervisors in each 
district, perhaps three, possibly five. Your Commit- 
tee asks, then, for authority to select certain breth- 
ren in each district and to ask them, in the name of 
Grand Lodge, to undertake to see that due attention 
is given to Masonic Education, that some group 
meetings are held, if that be thought desirable, or 
that the enterprise be carried forward in their own 
districts by whatever method they deem best. The 
duties of the District Deputy Grand Master are suf- 
ficiently heavy now. He would be asked only to con- 
vene the committee of supervisors early in the year, 
to discuss plans with them, and then to leave this 
duty entirely in their hands. The supervisors would 
act as instructors or they might select other instruc- 
tors, according to circumstances. This arrangement 
would be a combination of the two plans that have 
been in operation during the past two years and 
would, in our opinion, be the permanent solution of 
our problem. 

Chiefly in city lodges the custom has grown up 
in recent years of having, after the banquet, speeches 
or addresses, or both, the topics discussed by the 
principal speaker of the evening being, for example, 
the situation in Europe, the St. Lawrence waterway, 
fascism, unemployment insurance, and other current 
questions of the day. No doubt this is excellent adult 



TORONTO, OXTARIO, 1934 359 

education, but one may be permitted to ask what it 
has to do with Masonry and whether such forms of 
education should not be left to the service clubs and 
other excellent organizations which have this type of 
adult education as one of their objectives. The aver- 
age member of a lodge devotes not more than one 
evening each month to Masonry. Would it not be 
well, then, that the whole of that evening should be 
given up to a study of the history, the progress, the 
development, the ideals, and even the symbolism of 
the Craft? Instead of listening to talks on ex- 
traneous subjects, might not the addresses be always 
on Masonry? There is plenty of material; there 
need never be repetition. Most of the brethren in 
most of the lodges know little of how Grand Lodge 
is organized, of what it does, of its history. Why 
not inform them? This would be Masonic Education 
of an excellent type. Why do Masters of Lodges 
spend their energies seeking "outstanding speakers" 
(who frequently are not Masons) and coaxing them 
to speak on topics that have nothing to do with 
Masonry? Apparently it is custom and is rapidly 
becoming tradition in most city lodges. Why not, 
instead, develop talent within the lodge and per- 
suade the members to prepare addresses on Masonic 
topics? The brethren would probably be more in- 
terested than they now are and certainly they would 
soon become more intelligent Masons. If the policy 
here advocated were generally adopted, there would 
be plenty of time for Masonic Education. If the 
custom now prevalent continues, Masonry will 
gradually take over functions which do not pertain 
to it and will lose sight of its own traditional ideals. 
Is there a Worshipful Master in each large town or 
city in this Grand Jurisdiction who is brave enough 
to undertake to make each meeting of his lodge for 
one year purely a Masonic meeting from beginning 
to end? Let him try it and let him observe the re- 
sult in attendance, in interest, and in progress in 
Masonic Education. 

Masters of lodges ask how they can find time for 
Masonic Education. One suggestion has just been 
made. Another may perhaps not be out of order. 



360 GRAND LODGE OF CAXADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Some Masters have definitely and regularly set aside 
fifteen minutes at every regular meeting for a talk 
on some topic that concerns Masonry. Only fifteen 
minutes — but the result at the end of the year is re- 
markable. Fifteen minutes at each of ten meetings 
amounts to two hours and a half in the year. Will 
not anyone agree that faithful work of this kind is 
more effective than an attempt to have a spectacular 
meeting for the purpose once a year? One lodge that 
tried this plan had a talk one month on the word 
"ancient"; at the next meeting an officer spoke for 
fifteen minutes on the word "free"; and the follow- 
ing month a member, who was not an officer dis- 
cussed the word "accepted". On page 32 of the 
Manual twenty-two similar topics are listed — suffi- 
cient for two years. 

The Committee desires to express its cordial 
thanks to those who have so magnificently co-oper- 
ated during this year to make possible the most satis- 
factory progress that is evident in Masonic Education 
in the Jurisdiction. The District Deputy Grand 
Masters have been powerful and efficient advocates 
of advancement. The Masters of Lodges and their 
committees have done exceedingly well. The ma- 
chinery is running smoothly. Your Committee asks 
for a continuance of the co-operation it has enjoyed 
during this year. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally 
submitted.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 361 

REPORT ON THE GRAND LODGE LIBRARY 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. J. 
Durilop, and was regularly received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M., 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario: 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Special Committee, consisting of R.W. 
Bro. W. J. Dunlop (Chairman), R.W. Bro. M. E. 
McKenzie, and R.W. Bro. Chas. S. Hamilton, reports 
as follows : — 

Early in the year Bro. N. W. J. Haydon was 
appointed Librarian and undertook to be in attend- 
ance at the Library from 7.30 to 10 p.m. every 
Thursday evening from the beginning of October 
until the end of May and to send out books on loan 
in accordance with requests received by mail. The 
arrangement by which any brother may visit the 
Library during business hours and may read but 
may not borrow books was continued through the 
kindness of the President of the Masonic Temple 
Corporation. 

In November a list of books available for loan 
from the circulating section was printed and was 
mailed from the Grand Secretary's office, along with 
a statement of the regulations of the Library, to 
the secretary of every lodge in the Jurisdiction. 
Since then 124 books have been loaned for a period 
of two weeks each, 58 of them to brethren who called 
at the Library and 66 to brethren who wrote for them 
from varying distances. The register bears the names 
of 170 brethren who visited the Library and remained 
to read. In the Library, which is beautifully equip- 
ped and comfortably furnished, a table has been kept 
supplied with several current Masonic journals 

Additions have been made to the reference sec- 
tion. The Librarian has obtained from various 



362 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

sources useful reports and pamphlets. The Royal 
Astronomical Society of Canada presented a reprint 
of Judge Haliburton's "Festival of the Dead" which 
contains data bearing on our symbolic teachings. 
Two rare books, "Freemasonry in China", by W. 
Bro. H. A. Giles of Cambridge University, and a 
report on the Swedenborgian Masonry of the eigh- 
teenth century, were donated by the Toronto Society 
of Masonic Research. 

The Librarian has kindly assisted several breth- 
ren in finding material for addresses they had under- 
taken to deliver to their lodges as part of an educa- 
tional programme. Some of these requests were 
complied with by letter. He has also continued 
his work on the card index to the reference section 
until now there are more than two thousand cards 
available to assist enquirers. 

One noteworthy incident was this: W. Bro. J- 
W. Fryer of Golden Rule Lodge No. 409, Graven- 
hurst who pays more than one hundred visits each 
year to brethren who are patients in the Sanatorium 
near that town, wrote to say that there were eight 
brethren there who wished to do some Masonic 
reading. Our Librarian, Bro. Haydon, realizing that 
it would be unsafe to loan books to patients in a 
vSanatorium, wrote to the secretaries of the lodges of 
which these brethren were members and obtained 
gifts to the amount of 822.00. This money was used 
to purchase Masonic books, which were sent to the 
Superintendent of the Sanatorium for the use of 
Alasonic patients. These books will remain there 
permanently. A lodge in Michigan, one of whose 
members is a patient in the Sanatorium, has under- 
taken to send a collection of suitable books. Bro. 
Fryer writes a warm letter of thanks, in which he 
states that the lives of these unfortunate brethren 
have been considerably brightened through the 
thoughtful kindness of our Librarian. He also 
volunteers to act as guide to any member of Grand 
Lodge who may have an opportunity to visit the 
brethren in the Sanatorium. (His telephone is 132, 
Gravenhurst). 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 363 

Your Committee realizes that a plan for Ma- 
sonic Education cannot be carried on successfully 
unless books are available for study and we feel that, 
with limited resources, a good beginning has this year 
been made. Brethren are asked to make full use of 
the Grand Lodge Library; they may be assured that 
books will be added to the shelves as rapidly as funds 
will permit. 

Your Committee wishes to express its gratitude 
to the Librarian, Bro. Haydon, who has done excel- 
lent work throughout the year, and who has by no 
means counted the hours but has done everything 
that came to his hand. His interest in his work is 
remarkable and it is evident that he works for the 
love of Masonry. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally 
submitted.

OBLIGATION OF SCRUTINEERS 

The brethren who were named as Scrutineers 
of the ballot were called to the Altar where they were 
solemnly obligated by M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel. 



DISPOSAL OF MOTION 

In accordance with his notice thereof, M.W. Bro. 
J. A. Rowland moved an amendment to the Con- 
stitution as specified in the report of the Committee 
on Constitution and Laws. This motion was duly 
seconded by M.W. Bro. R. B. Dargavel and was 
unanimously carried by Grand Lodge. 

REPORT ON GRAND MASTER'S 
ADDRESS 

The report of the Special Committee appointed 
to consider and report upon the Address of the Grand 
Master, was presented by M.W. Bro. W. S. Herring- 
ton, and was regularly received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

In listening to the scholarly and inspiring address 
of our Grand Master the Committee feels that all who 
were privileged to hear it were deeply impressed with 
his clear and sympathetic presentation of the prob- 
lems confronting us in the present crisis of unrest and 
economic distress. The unscrupulous agitator never 
found more fertile soil in which to sow the seed of 
discontent and propagate the germs of anarchy and 
he has taken and is still taking full advantage of his 
opportunity. It is equally true, as pointed out by 
the Grand Master, that there never was a time when 
there was such an urgent demand for the intensive 
practice of the precepts of our order. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 365 

That some of the weaker Lodges would have 
difficulty in balancing their budgets was to be ex- 
pected. The Committee is pleased to learn that there 
is an apparent improvement in this respect and fully 
concurs in the view of the Grand Master that it would 
be unwise to hastily adopt any measure that might 
result in a considerable lessening of the income of 
Grand Lodge. The appointment of a Commission 
to deal with any special appeals for assistance appears 
to be the safest course to adopt. The Committee 
therefore recommends that such a Commission be 
appointed with the restricted powers proposed in that 
part of the address dealing with this question. 

The Committee heartily approves the firm stand 
taken by the Grand Master against the practice of 
permitting the Master or some other designated 
brother to cast a single ballot for the election of a 
brother to office. Such a practice is likely to lend 
itself to abuses that may very easily create serious 
trouble in a Lodge. 

The Committee agrees with the view of the Grand 
Master that too much caution cannot be exercised in 
giving to the public press a report of the proceedings 
of a meeting of a Lodge. 

His comments upon the danger of introducing any 
innovation in our musical ritual meet with the un- 
qualified approval of the Committee. 

The interchange of visits between Lodges in this 
jurisdiction and those in neighboring jurisdictions has 
done much in fostering the friendly relation happily 
existing with our Masonic brethren in these other 
jurisdictions, but to avoid any unpleasant complica- 
tions any Lodge contemplating making or receiving 
such a visit would do well to act upon the suggestion 
of the Grand Master and ascertain from competent 
authority the limitation placed upon such visits. 

The Committee concurs inl"the ruling of the 
Grand Master exempting funerals held under military 



366 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION" 

auspices from the ban prohibiting Masons from 
participating in funeral services in which any other 
organization takes part. As there is no military 
funeral service this ruling appears to be sound. 

The Committee agrees with the Grand Master 
that the time is ripe for the appointment of a Com- 
mittee with authority to edit and annotate an up-to- 
date record of the rulings of Grand Masters. 

The Committee commends to the careful con- 
sideration of all Masters the Grand Master's com- 
ments upon the forms of entertainment provided by 
the Lodges at their banquets. His suggestions also 
regarding the need of tendering advise to the be- 
reaved family of a deceased brother are timely and 
commendable. 

The Committee believing that the Veterans 
Jewels awarded upon the suggestion of the late M.W. 
Bro. Hon. John S. Martin were greatly appreciated 
by the recipients is in sympathy with the proposal of 
the Grand Master that Grand Lodge establish a 
permanent Veteran's Jewel. The Committee there- 
fore recommends that a committee be appointed to 
enquire into the feasibility of establishing such a 
jewel, the cost of its production, the form it should 
take and the conditions under which it should be 
awarded and report at our next annual communication 

The Committee joins with the Grand Master in 
welcoming to our Annual Communication so many 
distinguished brethren from our neighboring juris- 
dictions and desires to express the hope that they will 
carry away with them pleasant memories of their 
all-too-brief stay among us. 

The Committee congratulates the Grand Master 
upon the successful termination of the first year of 
his term of office as Ruler of the Craft, a year that 
has made exacting demands upon his energy and 
strength and rejoices that he has accomplished so 
much with no apparent impairment of his health. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1934 367 

The Committee feels that it expresses the sentiments 
of every member of Grand Lodge in wishing him God 
speed, assuring him of our loyalty and devotion. 

Fraternally submitted, 

W. S. HERRINGTON, 

Chairman. 

REPORT ON PROPOSED CHANGE OF NAME 

The report of the Special Committee appointed 
to consider and report upon a proposal to change the 
name of this Grand Lodge, was presented by M.W. 
Bro. W. S. Herrington, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. Herrington, 
the report was unanimously received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge of Canada 
A.F. & A.M. in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee appointed to consider the 
advisability of changing the name of our Grand Lodge 
begs leave to report as follows : 

The name "Grand Lodge of Canada" was 
adopted by our Grand Lodge at the time of its organ- 
ization in 1855. 

After Confederation, when other Grand Lodges 
were organized in the Dominion, we added to our 
title the words "in the Province of Ontario" in order 
to prevent any misunderstanding as to the extent 
of our territorial jurisdiction. 

In 1921 at our Annual Communication the 
question of changing our name to read "The Grand 
Lodge of the Province of Ontario" was fully discussed 
upon the floor of Grand Lodge and the vote of Grand 
Lodge was overwhelmingly against the change. 



36S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The arguments then advanced hold good todav. 
The same sentiments aminate us today. Tenacious 
of the traditions of our forbears and their labor of 
love in building this family of the houshold of the 
faithful we must remain loyal to the memories of our 
historic past. Our name is a precious heritage read 
and known of all men of the Craft universal. 

The Grand Master of Alberta struck the keynote 
of the situation when dealing with this question in his 
address he was generous enough to say, "When we 
read the history of these stirring days 78 years ago we 
can sympathize with the pride that prompts a con- 
tinuance of the title and can understand the reluct- 
ance to introduce a change." 

Your Committee therefore respectfully recom- 
mends that no change be made in the name that has 
been so long, so honorably and so intimately associ- 
ated with our Grand Lodge. All of which is fraternal- 
ly submitted, 

W. S. HERRINGTON, 
Chairman.

WILLIAM NISBET PONTON, P.G.M., 
Belleville, July 1934. Reviewer. 



GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 



ALABAMA 

William L. Lee, Grand Master. 

Guy T. Smith, Grand Secretary. 

The One hundred and thirteenth Annual was held in 
Montgomery, December 5, 1933. Nine Past Grand Masters 
present and Canada was represented by Ethridge J. Gar- 
rison. 

Prior to the meeting being called to order, the ladies 
of the Eastern Star were introduced and here is a striking 
record — we reproduce it exactly as printed — "Grand Master 
escorted to the Grand East by Mrs. Annie Gregory". 
What will be the next step? 

From the Grand Master's address we take the following 
extracts : — 

A sincerity that is deep in gratitude, for your loyalty 
in the trying hours of this Masonic year has been inspira- 
tional to me, has given me joy in my labors. 

We began the new year auspiciously and our future 
seemed bright, our hopes ran high, only to be dimmed when 
the financial crash of March 4th, 1933, involved our finances 
and what few dollars we had seemed retired to closed 
\aults. 

Tt has been a year of group thought, yet leadership has 
been paramount, individualism not lost, but co-ordinating 
with the thought in leadership that springs into that force 
which collective action gives. Tt has been this group 
thought that has made possible our efforts for success. 

And the people of our nation must not be impatient, 
but co-operative, carrying an inspirational patriotism. 

No organization than ours, in this land of the free, is 
better taught and girded in the tenets of life to meet such 
condition and to be a factor in the real contribution of the 
rehabilitation of a distressed people. 

Always associated with the Creator of life in its crea- 
tion and the purpose of its creation, we are human builders, 
improving, developing, harnessing and moulding our im- 
pulses, our desires, our appetites, our passions. 

Tt was not only appalling to me but it will be to suc- 
ceeding Grand Masters if the evil is not corrected in some 
way of having the subordinate lodges of the state in arrears 
from one to three years. 

T invited the Advisory Board of the Order of the 
Eastern Star to the Home to assume the position of mem- 
bers of the Board of Control, with the power to vote, to 
deliberate over all questions, to become familiar with the 
finances of the Home, to make motions, offer resolutions 
and function as members of the Board of Control. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 7 

May God ever bless our sisters and ever keep them as 
our helpmates. 

We have endeavored earnestly to change the Home 
from a place of pleasure and leisure to a place of pleasure 
and work. 

May every Mason, through the light of the Craft 
sense his duty and ever stand for the advancement, the 
enlightenment of the children of our state educationally. 

Among his decisions the following: — 

Every Minister must pay the $10. 00 for the Masonic 
Home. 

Tt is not lawful nor authorized for a suspended Mason, 
for any reason, to sit in open lodge. Tt is lawful for a 
member behind with his dues to sit in open lodge if he has 
not been suspended. 

No Mason, under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge 
of Alabama, can engage in the sale of any beverage that is 
intoxicating. 

We have entirely too many lodges. 

We have learned in these dark days that no individual 
or state, nation or even the great wide world, or the groups 
of states that compose the nation or the groups of countries 
that compose the world, in its several divisions, can progress 
without contact with one another. Tn every life the Great 
God will bring into that life an inspiration and if everyone 
will find that inspiration and then throw into action the 
thoughts that inspiration gives unto him, the results of his 
action will be immeasurable. 

Samuel A. Moore was elected Grand Master. 

Membership 30,927. Net loss 6,134. 

This from the Memorial pages:— 
And still their silent ministrv, 

Within our heart hath place, 
As when our earth thev walked with us, 
And met us face to face. 

Frederick J. Skinner represents Alabama. 



ALBERTA 

Gilbert M. Blackstock, K.C., Grand Master. 

J. H. W. S. Kemmis, Grand Secretary. 

The Twenty-eighth Annual was held in Calgary, June 
14, 1933. 

Thirteen Past Grand Masters were present doing duty. 

Canada was represented by M.W. Bro. J. A. Jackson. 

This from the biography of the outstanding Grand 
Master: — 



8 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Samuel Blackstock was a descendant of those ancient 
adventurers who for generations harried the Borders when- 
ever their good ladies gave notice that the larder was 
depleted by serving a dish of spurs. It is said that this 
particular family favored black cattle in their forays, hence 
the name, while the McNeil side of the family was likewise 
famous for deeds of action in those stirring days. "Bonny 
fechters a'." 

Three Senior Veterans of Grand Lodge were invited to 
the Grand East. 

This telegram was received from Iowa: — 

"The Grand Lodge of Iowa joins hands with our 
brethren of Alberta as six Grand Lodges of North America 
convene in Grand Communication, thus forming a chain of 
Masonic brotherhood from Coast to Coast." 

The Grand Master's address is one of the most striking 
that it has been our privilege to read. Our difficulty is to 
know where to stop in quoting from it. His directness of 
aim and clarity of expression will be apparent from the 
following : — 

This communication will send us forth on our journey 
for another year with our faith renewed, our hope restored, 
imbued with determination and courage to meet, grapple 
with and conquer the never-ending difficulties which the 
complexities of modern civilization have brought to us in 
large measure at this time. 

A year of useful service, I hope, a year of experiences 
alike interesting and enriching. 

It formed the keynote of my addresses at the various 
District meetings. It seems to me that the time has long 
passed when Masonry can hide behind the covers of its 
ritual and ceremonial and disregard, as a body, the prob- 
lems which beset us as individuals. To-day, we in Canada 
are facing the challenge of Communism to the world — 
a challenge that was hurled forth some fifteen years ago — 
a challenge which we, in our self-complacency or with a 
feeling of isolated security ignored or did not recognize. 
We now stand face to face with it in all its implications and 
stark realism. We see at this time Soviet Russia with dic- 
tatorship of the proletariat. 

That challenge must be faced and met — not with words 
only, but by constructive thought and action or we may see 
even in our day the end of democracy. Is Masonry a 
matter of mere ritual, of beautiful form and ceremony? 
No. It is a living, virile, driving force of educational value. 

Introduction or the discussion of such problems in our 
lodges. Not so, but rather that Masonry should be a posl 
graduate course, an academic training, which will enable 
Masons to think out and solve the problems of life for 
themselveg. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 9 

As Masons, as Canadians, and British subjects, as 
citizens of the world, let us bend ourselves to the task 
which lies before us, so that changes — if changes there must 
be — shall be to higher and not to lower spheres of thought 
and action. 

"To everything there is a season and a time to every 
purpose under the Heaven. 
A time to be born and a time to die." 

D.D.G.M's can make or they can mar the efficiency 
and usefulness of their districts and upon their shoulders 
rests an onerous responsibility. 

Inter-lodge visitation goes on apace — Harmony and 
fraternity all well with the Craft in general and from the 
ashes of this depression Masonry would emerge a greater 
moral, intellectual and spiritual force than ever before, with 
a membership chastened and strengthened by the fires of 
adversity. 

The Most Honourable the Marquess of Zetland, 
visited Calgary in the course of a lecture tour under the 
auspices of the National Council. Ties of sentiment, but 
with the British Crown as the symbol of unity. We 
realized just how strong were those ties and how precious 
the symbol. 

I was particularly struck by obvious feelings of friend- 
ship existing between our brethren from the South and 
British Columbia. They knew each other and they were 
already friends. 

It is by such meetings that we can get each other's 
view point, understand the other's background, glimpse 
the other's ideals and lay the foundations of mutual good- 
will and respect. 

Many other matters were referred to me for "rulings" 
which I declined to give as they dealt with matters on 
which the Constitution was quite clear. It seems to me 
that a Master's proficiency in the Constitution is just as 
important as his proficiency in the "Work" and should be a 
condition precedent to installation. 

The organization in question venting their spleen on 
certain individuals, attempted by means of so-called pet- 
itions, couched in execrable English and in still worse taste, 
to intimidate two lodges into rejecting petitioners for initia- 
tion. 

Masons are absolutely free to become members of any 
organization as they may see fit, but when they attempt to 
use their Masonic influence to further the aims or assist 
in the vendettas of other organizations, then they place 
their Masonic membership in jeopardy. 

A clandestine Mason had been a constant visitor in one 
of our lodges and had even addressed the lodge on Masonic 
subjects. He was a member of an organization fin Van- 



10 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

couver which he alleged was recognized by the Grand 
Lodge of England. Such a claim was, of course, sheer 
nonsense and steps were taken to put an end to this man's 
activities. 

I point out again the care which must be exercised in 
admitting visitors to our lodges, not only in seeing that 
credentials are in order but that the lodge from which the 
visitor hails is in a jurisdiction recognized by the Grand 
Lodge. 

At one of the District Meetings I was asked if it would 
be considered a Masonic offence for a Mason to become a 
member of the Klu Klux Klan. As I know nothing about 
this organization I could not reply other than in general 
terms. Any Mason is privileged to be a member of any 
organization which recognizes the constitution of our 
country, is subservient to and obeys our laws, but no 
Mason should become a member of any organization which 
considers itself above the law or which considers that it is a 
law unto itself. 

So often our own members point out how far short 
we fall in competition with other organizations, whose aims 
are frankly altruistic — organizations which collectj|money 
from people who cannot afford to give in order that assist- 
ance may be given to the same class. 

The Committee on Fraternal Dead quote: — 

" 'Tis hard to take the burden up 
When these have laid it down; 
They brightened all the joys of life, 

They softened every frown; 
And, oh, 'tis good to think of them 

When we are troubled sore! 
Thanks be to God that such have been, 
Though they are here no more. 

The D.D.G.M's of seventeen Districts made brief 
Reports. 

Membership 13,617. Net decrease 408. 

The Committee on Grievances and Appeals were not 
called upon to act. 

Bro. Rev. Dr. Robert Paton Ph. D., of Calgary, ad- 
dressed the brethren on the fertile subject of "Forerunners 
of Freemasonry". We quote: — 

Before we can make a true estimate of these mystery 
religions, we ought to make a brief survey of the social and 
political and religious history that brought them into 
prominence. It was in the lands of the Eastern Mediter- 
ranean that they first made fruitful contact with the peoples 
of ancient Europe. These lands to the east have been 
inhabited by a succession of civilizations. Each has left 
its influence upon succeeding generations and each has been 
influenced by the Oriental brotherhoods. Even Christianity 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 11 

itself, which came to birth round the shores of the Mediter- 
ranean, still bears about its body some of the marks of the 
Mysteries. 

"East is East and West is West, 
And never the twain shall meet." 

They did meet — in these religious brotherhoods. 

People had arrived at the stage of worshipping the gods 
without believing in them. The religion of Rome was a 
state affair, but the national gods were losing out. Their 
chief function was to furnish guidance and augury in na- 
tional undertakings. 

Perhaps the most impressive of all the symbolic sacra- 
ments of the Mysteries was the Taurubolium, or the bath 
in the bull's blood. 

"Lord" of the Mysteries was the one who initiated his 
followers into the life of the Divine. And surely this is the 
beginning and the end of the Masonic Pilgrimage, the link 
that binds morality and- truth to the heart of religion. 
"Behold I stand at the door and knock." 

The Committee on Benevolence quote: — 
"God gives us joy that we may give 
He gives us love that we may share; 
Sometimes he gives us loads to lift. 
That we may learn to bear. 

The Committee on Fraternal Relations require more 
adequate proof of the fulfillment of their requiiements be- 
fore granting recognition to Jurisdictions who have applied. 
As to Education by Reviews generally, they say: — 

Your Committee renews its suggestion of last year to 
the Committee on Masonic Research and Education to 
consider in what manner and to what extent ways and means 
may be found toward the greater utilization of the Annual 
Reviews of the Proceedings of other Grand Jurisdictions in 
developing a well-informed body on Masonic opinion in this 
jurisdiction. 

John Martland, a name all old Upper Canada College 
boys will remember, was elected Grand Master. 

Thomas A. Carson of Toionto, represents Alberta. 

The Rulings of Grand Masters, approved by Grand 
Lodge, make instructive reading. 

Fraternal Correspondence is in the able and exper- 
ienced hands of F. S. Selwood, P.G.M. He was assisted 
by a Committee, which included the Grand Master himself, 
to whom Canada is indebted for a full and favourable 
Review, from which we make the following extracts: — 

In his reply and later in his address the Grand Master 
referred to the action taken by the Provincial Grand Lodge 
of Canada West, which ultimately led to the formation of 
the Grand Lodge of Canada. Some of us may not agree 



12 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

with the continued use of the Title "Grand Lodge of 
Canada," that is a matter which we can safely leave to the 
sound judgment and good taste of our brethren in Ontario, 
but when we read the history of these stirring days, 7S 
years ago, we can sympathize with the pride which prompts 
a continuance of the title and can understand the reluctance 
to introduce a change. 

We read the Grand Master's address with much joy 
as he touches matters which we have dealt with in this 
jurisdiction. 

We are indeed pleased to have our views so forcefully 
expressed by the Grand Master. 

He deals effectively with the unnecessary waste of time 
in the lodge room and we are in personal greement with his 
views. We wonder, however, if the ordinary side bencher 
does not rather enjoy the lazy evening rather than one of 
hustle. The ordinary member as a rule is not as busy a 
man as the Grand Master and has more time to waste 
and enjoys wasting it. 

We are glad to read the Grand Master's pronounce- 
ment regarding Order of the Eastern Star. He defines the 
relative positions. 

The committee points out that unemployment relief 
must be primarily the responsibility of the constituent 
lodge. We are glad to have our own views on this point 
confirmed from Ontario and ask that the perpetual kickers 
will please note. 

We would like to have the time and space to review 
the reviews of the various Grand Jurisdictions contained in 
the Proceedings. The reviewer, who, incidentally, is very 
kind to the Province of Alberta, wields a trenchant pen. 

From the Review of British Columbia these citations: — 

The Grand Master evidently realizes that "Provincial- 
ism" is just as dangerous as "Nationalism." We respect- 
fully concur. 

In speaking of M.W. Bro. DeWolf-Smith, the Grand 
Secretary, he says: 

"His virtues have been extolled and his vices (if he 
has any) overlooked." 

We don't know if the M.W. Brother has any vices but 
if the power to express himself with a wicked pen is a vice, 
then he has one at least. We all enjoy the aforesaid pen. 

ARIZONA 

Fred Ormal Goodell, Grand Master. 
Harry Arizona Drachman, Grand Secretary. 
A Special Communication was necessary to provide 
funds to be used before the Annual, and necessary transfers 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 13 

from other funds to general were directed to be made and 
transfer also to the Masonic Home Capital account. 

The Proceedings are unique in that they are prefaced 
by a copper plate engraving on a copper sheet of the portrait 
of the Grand Master. We presume the metal was produced 
in Arizona itself and reflects credit on the artist. 

The Fifty-first Annual was held at Phoenix, March 14, 
1933. This from the invocation of Grand Chaplain Jenkins: 

Supreme Grand Master, Source of Life and Light, and 
Father of Love; Again, after another twelve months of labor 
on the Temple Walls, we come. Grant that in all our 
experiences our faith may be well founded indeed, because 
our trust is in Thee. And may our trust in Thee reveal 
itself in continued confidence in our fellow-men, and may 
this result in the deepening and strenghtening of our belief 
in Human Brotherhood. And may our profession of 
brotherhood find its sincere expression in the outstretched 
hand of active sympathy. 

Fourteen Past Grand Masters were honoured in the 
Grand East. 

Canada's Grand Representative did not respond to 
Roll Call. 

The Grand Master treated of various subjects in an 
able manner. He refers to the following with others: — 

Action equable to all and conducive to the best in- 
terests of Masonry. 

I wish, at this time, to pay tribute to the Past Grand 
Masters of this Jurisdiction, who have been so regular in 
attendance. 

I am deeply indebted to the officers of this Grand 
Lodge, whose advice and counsel have been invaluable. 

The accomplishment necessitated my traveling 418 
miles by railroad and 5,010 miles by automobile. Planning 
of my itinerary for visiting brought clearly before me that 
we are a state of magnificent distances. 

It was a treat and very much of a pleasure for me to 
see again the scenic mountain sections and fertile valleys 
of our beautiful State in my travels to the snow-capped 
San Francisco Peaks in the North and the sunny border of 
Mexico to the South, and a great privilege to fraternize 
with brethren. 

The admonition to the Worshipful Master at the time 
of installation, to diligently search the Constitution and 
from time to time to cause its contents to be read in his 
Lodge, that none may remain ignorant of the precepts it 
enjoins, or of the ordinances which it promulgates. Com- 
pliance with this admonition will doubtless obviate many 
inquiries. 

He refers to the Oracle Picnic in Salt River Valley, 
where the Masonic Sanatorium is situated. 



14 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Every case of delinquency and liability for suspension 
for non-payment of dues deserves and should have full 
consideration and careful judgment. The Secretary should 
be interested in his duties; the welfare of the lodge as a 
whole and of each individual member. 

He speaks in approbation of the good work of the 
Sojourners' Club, of Tucson, and the Wayfarers' Club of 
Prescott. 

He advocates the holding in all lodges of a Grand 
Lodge Night, devoted to the study of Grand Lodge Pro- 
ceedings and Reports. 

Membershpi 6,585. Net loss 141. 

The oration of Grand Orator Buehman does not lend 
itself well to quotation. Nevertheless we take the following 
paragraphs as representative: — 

Our President, Franklin Roosevelt, is a much stronger, 
better balanced man through receiving the lessons of ma- 
sonry than he would be otherwise. The Masonic order is 
made up of millions of men, each one a part of the great 
whole. As a chain is made up of separate, distinct links, 
so Masonry, or the influence of Masonry, rests upon our 
individual acts. As you and I think, so Masonry thinks. 
Masonry can only be as big, as powerful, as influential as 
you and I make it. Fortunately, Masonry is not like the 
Depression, as told in a familiar story, wherein the depres- 
sion was likened to Christopher Columbus, who didn't know 
where he was going when he started out, didn't know 
where he was "at ' when he got there, and didn't even 
know where he had been when he got back. Masonry, 
is a sure, sound foundation. Glimpse occasionally the 
working plan of the Supreme Architect, who doeth all 
things well. 

Much has been lost in the effect and the impression 
upon the candidate, in putting on the degrees and carrying 
<. n the work, through lessening of the dignity maintained 
in the lodge room — some may call it the stiffness — to many 
it is old fashioned, but still, it is the Masonry that has 
survived the centuries, and of which we are the custodians. 
Talking in a low tone of voice, even whispers that were 
audible, during the portrayal of a degree was formerly 
frowned upon and peremptorily silenced. Now, it has be- 
come quite common. While audible laughter or giggling 
was not allowed. 

This tribute to the memory of the late Bro. Sir Gilbert 
Parker, a life long friend of this Reviewer, is appreciated 
by us all : — 

In addition to these brethren of our American Juris- 
dictions we record the name of an old and honored friend of 
Arizona Masons from across the sea, Sir Gilbert Parker, 
Grand Representative of the Grand Lodge of Arizona near

the Grand Lodge of England. We deeply regret the passing 
away of this distinguished Mason, who more than once in 
the past twenty years has not only sat in communications 
of our Subordinate Lodges, especially in Aztlan Lodge No. 
1, at Prescott, but has also graced Grand Lodge. 

In behalf of soldiers who had been crippled during the 
Great War, and had made great sacrifices in the cause of 
humanity. 

Resolved: That the customary pages be set apart iu 
our printed proceedings as a memorial to our brethren who 
have gone from us to the Celestial Lodge on High during 
the past year; and that a special page be devoted to the 
memory of our Brother Sir Gilbert Parker of the M.W. 
Grand Lodge of England. 

A sentence imposed by a Trial Commission was re- 
versed by the Committee on Grievances, and the brother 
was suspended from all the -rights and privileges of Masonry. 

Marquis Lafayette Gibbons was elected Grand Master. 

Arizona boasts a Past Grand Masters' Association. 
In the report of their meeting this is quoted: 

"Backward, turn backward, O Time in thy flight; 
Make me a child again just for tonight." 

Louis B. Mayers represents Canada, and Frederick 
Symes of Fort William, represents Arizona.

W. A. De Wolf -Smith, Grand Secretary. 

An Emergent Communication was held 20th August, 
1932, for laying a cornerstone and another in October for 
dedicating a new Temple at Vernon. 

At the Emergent meeting held in Vancouver, 30th 
May, 1933, the Grand Masters of Alberta, Oregon and 
Washington, were welcomed and felicitously responded. 
This also is interesting about one who in his multitudinous 
national duties finds time sometimes for the Craft: — 

The Grand Secretary also read a letter from Brother 
the Rt. Hon. R. B. Bennett, regretting his inability to be 
present. 

The Sixty-second Annual was held in Victoria, 22nd 
June, 1933. Eighteen Past Grand Masters testified to the 
salubriousness of that western climate. 

J. R. Seymour represented Canada. 

Grand Chaplain Henderson addressed the brethren on 
"The Strength and Beauty of Life" from which we cannot 
resist making the following extracts: — 

The soul of masonry is its symbolism. 



16 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Newton says, "When at last the craft finished its 
labours and laid down its tools, its symbols, having served 
the faith of the worker, became a language for the thoughts 
of the thinker. 

Take the science of numbers, few of us realize its 
service to the faith of man in the morning of the world, 
when he sought to find some kind of key to the mighty 
maze of things. Pythagoras, that wise old philosopher, 
said, "All things are in numbers, the world is a living 
arithmetic in its development — a realized geometry in its 
repose." 

"Nature is a realm of numbers: Crystals are solid 
geometry. Music moves with measured step, using geo- 
metrical figures, and cannot free itself from numbers with- 
out dying away into discord." 

Plutarch reports Plato as saying, "God is always 
geometrizing" and in his Republic Plato says, "Geometry 
rightly treated is the knowledge of the eternal." And over 
the Porch of his Academy in Athens he wrote the words, 
"Let no one who is ignorant of geometry enter my doors." 

Newton says, "Hardly a language but bears their 
impress, as when we speak of a rude or polished mind, of an 
upright man who is a Pillar of Society, or the level of 
equality, or the Golden Rule by which we would square 
our actions. They are so natural, so inevitable, and so 
eloquent withal, that we use them without knowing it." 

Life should be beautiful as well as strong. On top of 
the pillars was lily work. So we have not only utility but 
adornment. Beauty has a great part to play in the min- 
istry of life. So mighty and massive. 

"Humility is never so lovely, as when arrayed in 
scarlet. Moderation never so impressive as when it sits at 
banquets. . . Simplicity never so delightful as when it 
dwells amidst magnificence. . . Purity never so divine, 
as when its unsullied robes are worn in the King's palace 
. . . gentleness never so touching as when it exists in the 
poweerful." 

When men combine gold and goodness, greatness and 
Godlikeness. . . genius and graces. . . human nature is at 
its best. 

"Rest is not quitting the busy career. 
Rest is fitting of self to its sphere." 

"Tis loving and serving, the highest and best, 
Tis onward, unswerving, and this is true rest." 

I read in the sacred volume of the law of three whose 
faces shone. They were all winsome men. They drew men 
to them as the magnet attracts the filings of steel. 

The Grand Secretary, who has received the honorary 
degree of Past Grand Master, was presented with an appro- 
priate jewel.

Grand Master Beck's address was full of interest 
We quote: — 

I regret that I was unable to visit the Lodges in the 
Prince Rupert District and the Yukon, but time and ex- 
pense prevented me gratifying a long expressed wish. 

Our Craft has an opportunity never before offered so 
clearly, of collectively working for the uplift of mankind 
in an international way, and to combat the insidious cam- 
paign being carried on to undermine law and order; let our 
every effort be to promote the best interest of world peace 
and international amity. If Freemasonry teaches anything 
it is to be good and law-abiding citizens, to discountenance 
disloyalty, to avoid private piques and quarrels, either local 
or national, and to promote the happiness of mankind. 

We can materially help you and our motto is service 
to the brethren. 

Other Boards are operating to help those who are 
transients or not affiliated. 

Victoria Board of Relief is doing excellent work amongst 
the members of constituent lodges helping cases of unem- 
ployment. No work deserves greater commendation. 

"As a direct result of the interest awakened by the 
Circulating Library, two lodges have decided to form 
libraries of their own. 

Previous Grand Masters have ruled that an applicant 
who has lost the second and third joints of the index finger 
of his right hand is not eligible for initiation. 

At the cemetery after the clergyman has finished his 
service, the lodge should take charge of the body and com- 
mit it to the ground. Under such conditions it is not 
essential that the pall-bearers should be Masons. 

Notices of lodge meetings (except for funerals) must 
be sent out in sealed envelopes. 

The D.D.G.M's of 18 Districts reported briefly but 
comprehensively. 

The Grand Secretary said in his report : — 

An increasing number of Secretaries now use the type- 
writer in preparing their Returns, which materially lessens 
the work of the Grand Secretary's office and is a help. 

Membership 15,262. Net loss 283. 

Grand Historian Reid made an admirable report em- 
bracing many lodges, well illustrated, and covering many 
pages. 

From the Memorial of the late Bro. Terry we quote: —

I wait the muffled oar; 
No harm from Him can come to me 

On ocean or on shore.

I know not where His islands lift 

Their fronded palms on air; 
I only know I cannot drift 
Beyond His love and care. 

Dr. A. Henderson was elected Grand Master. 

R.W. Bro. Edward B. Brown, K.C., represents British 
Columbia. A long illness in which he is bravely holding 
his own, has prevented him attending Grand Lodge, much 
to the regret of his many friends. 

The Roll of Honour of those Craftsmen who had fallen 
in the War was read, as is the honourable custom. The 
Roll is headed by the motto "Dulce et decorum est pro 
patria mori." 

The Grand Secretary presented the Report on Foreign 
Correspondence. He wields a trenchant pen directed by a 
discerning mind, each Jurisdiction being impressed by his 
personality. 

In the Arkansas Review we read : — 

We should say that the qualifying clause should have 
been omitted. If a member of a lodge objects to the 
presence of a visitor, the visitor should be required to retire, 
and the nature of the objection should not be enquired 
into. 

Canada at Kingston is fraternally treated. We quote: 

Consistently maintained but one position, "Peace on 
Earth good will towards men," and the Grand Master 
concluded this portion of his Address on a note of optimism 
which must have been very heartening to his hearers. 

Questionable financing of lodges by lotteries and the 
like; the ventilation (or lack of it) of some lodge rooms. 

Late hours, travelling long distances and the irregular 
diets that absence from one's home entails are not con- 
ducive to good health nor longevity. 

The rulings reported were few in numbers. 

In his exceedingly interesting Report on Foreign 
Correspondence, Bro. Ponton reviews the transactions of 
sixty-nine regular Grand Lodges, and two not so regular. 

The magnificent Address delivered at our Communica- 
tion by Bro. R. B. Dargavel. 

This from Wyoming Review: — 

This is in line with our regulations, although personally 
we object to the use of the expression "Blue Lodge". 

Isn't Georgia as much entitled to a memorial as 
Virginia? 

Altogether the Address is permeated with sound com- 
mon sense, entirely devoid of any bombastic oratory, and 
one that it is a pleasure to read.

George A. Luxford, Grand Master. 

William W. Cooper, Grand Secretary. 

The Seventy -third Annual was held in Denver, Sep- 
tember 19, 1933. 

Fifteen Past Grand Masters were honoured and the 
Roll of deceased Past Rulers of the Craft was read. 

Distinguished guests from Texas were received. 

Stanley C. Warner duly represented Canada. 

The Grand Master made a striking address: — - 

It is an inspiration to meet with our lodges and visit 
with the brethren. Everywhere solid, substantial citizens 
gather around our altars. There is a never-ending fascina- 
tion in reading the splendid record our forebears made here. 
Having walked the ways they did, having seen the same 
plains and peaks, and passes, having seen also the same old 
lodge rooms and grasped hands with those gathered there; 
let me say to you that their sons are still here, imbued with 
the same old spirit that has glorified the record of the 
Craft in the Centennial State for three-quarters of a century. 
They had their problems to solve and they solved them. 
From the record, we know what they did and how they 
did it. We have our problems. In the midst of a great 
emergency, the Craft is solving the problems of today with a 
patience and fortitude, with a skill and wisdom, with a 
courage and determination which stamps them as worthy 
sons of those hardy pioneers. 

The effects of what we shall do here will radiate to 
every lodge in the jurisdiction, so that when the gavel falls 
on the final session of this Annual Communication, no 
work will be left undone that should have been accomplished 
and none offered as finished work that will not pass in- 
spection. 

After having given this matter full and careful con- 
sideration, I find that of the eighty-seven recipients of our 
bounty, only thirteen are cared for in places other than 
with kinfolks . 

After witnessing the play "Brother Service," written by 
Bro. Baum, which was given at the last annual communica- 
tion of this Grand Lodge, I felt that it carried a message 
that was vital and that it should be witnessed. 

Bro. Cooper is a veritable mine of Masonic informa- 
tion, which he has given me without stint. 

Some philosopher has written: "The divinity that rules 
over the Past, is Memory; Today is ruled by Reason; 
Tomorrow is under the regency of Hope." 

Reason — that great faculty that has been given to 
Man. Today we stand here under the rule of reason;

propositions presented to this Grand Lodge, as workmen

Hope — Hope springs eternal in the human breast, 
for the welfare of our firesides and our children; hope for the 
future and well-being of our country; hope for the future of 
our beloved Fraternity; these be the things, brethren, that 
twine themselves into the heart-strings.

Aged and indigent Masons, their wives, widows and

investments. 

Monuments were unveiled and dedicated at Central 
City. 

Grand Orator Baum addressed the brethren on "The 
Leaven in the Loaf". We make the following brief ex- 
tracts: — 

It was necessary that Masonry should be based on 
fundamentals, in themselves changeless, but applicable to 
changing conditions of mankind through long periods of 
evolution, and working as leaven through the loaf to the 
eventual improvement of the race. 

Masonry is not, and was never intended to be, an 
agency of reform. She is the great teacher of men, and 
men well taught and strong in their conviction for the right 
must be the real agencies for the betterment of the race. 

I preach the doctrine of individuality. 

Although the Craftsman has the satisfaction 

Of striving to perfect a thing of worth 

With wisdom, strength, and beauty in its fabric, 

It cannot be completed on this earth. 

Howard T. Vaille was elected Grand Master. 

Photographs of the Past Grand Masters adorn the 
Proceedings. 

Andrew H. Dalziel of Windsor, represents Colorado. 

Stanley C. Warner presents his annual Review of 
fifty -eight Jurisdictions, summarizing as follows: — 

There are especially noted breaches of our principles 
that bring discredit upon the Craft, the subjects of dual 
membership, the financial question, the celebration of the 
George Washington Bicentennial, our unaffiliated or sus- 
pended membrship, and Masonic charity, including in a few 
cases the relative merits of different forms of Masonic 
benevolence. 

Under British Columbia he refers to the honour con- 
ferred on the Grand Secretary by the rank of Past Grand 
Master.

He reviews Canada at Kingston, making many extracts

The Grand Master said in his address: — 

During this year general economic conditions have been 
precarious and unavoidably they are reflected in the experi- 
snce of our lodges. 

Of a faithful Archivist; his lodge is indebted to him for 
the degree of completeness of its records. 

The highest type of a Christian gentleman. 

Masters and Wardens Association, much enthusiasm 
was generated through this organization the results of which 
proved very beneficial to this district. 

Continuous membership means uninterrupted member- 
ship. Therefore, the brother must pay dues thirty con- 
secutive years from the time of his reinstatement. 

He speaks highly of the work of the Grotto in con- 
nection with the Masonic Home. Of the Home itself he 
says : — 

To me this is the most outstanding justification for the 
existence of the Masonic Fraternity, and my brethren, you 
may be assured that the affairs of this Foundation are being 
administered in a very efficient and business-like way. 

Grand Master's Day was observed as usual at the 
Home. Those who visited it rejoiced that they had a part 
in this great work. 

He condemns lotteries and similar plans for raising 
money. 

As to the impression on the candidate he truly says: — 

There is the temptation sometimes to prepare the 

candidate's mind for something entirely different. This 

should be guarded against and it is the special duty of the 



22 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Master of each lodge to endeavor to educate his brethren 
on that subject. 

There are dramatic possibilities, that, when not over- 
done, are much more effective. 

Physical qualifications are still in force in Connecticut. 

He speaks highly of the Masonic Service Association. 
He declined to over look or wink at flagrant, considered 
wrong doing. 

He emphasizes the necessity of leadership in con- 
stituent lodges: — 

The lodge with intelligent, devoted leadership gives the 
best account of itself in the community. Organizations 
seldom rise higher than their leaders, and particularly during 
such difficult times as we are now passing through. 

The funeral Ritual he considers too gloomy and lacking 
in comfort and hope. A Committee will be appointed to 
revise and rewrite this service.

Samuel A. Moyle was elected Grand Master. 

Anson F. Keeler represents Canada, and George H. 
Smith of Toronto, represents Connecticut. 

George A. Kies, P.G.M., an old friend and comrade, 
presents his annual characteristic Report which reflects his 
personality. He says in his introduction: — 

A very few Grand Lodges have laws requiring appli- 
cants for affiliation to file their petitions in lodges near their 
residences. This strikes us as ill judged. 

The law of territorial jurisdiction is a comparatively 
modern one. We have a "hunch" that it was adopted on 
proper investigation. But an applicant for affiliation is 
already a Mason and entitled to some rights as such. Hence 
the placing of his affiliation is a secondary matter. Where 
dual or plural membership is allowed, the question of 
residence obviously cannot matter. 

A close reading of our views will show that we do not 
object to the livest interest and action in political, religious 
and like matters on the part of the individual. Indeed we 
ardently advocate it. At times we ourself are an ardent 
partisan. Yet we would never think of introducing such 
matters into lodge. 

As a sidelight, we note that in one western Grand 
Lodge there was much excitement because a speaker in one 
lodge advocated the overthrow of our government, etc. 
Very properly restrictive action followed. 

We are still of the opinion that this hot end of a 
poker had best never even be approached. 

The question sometimes arises as to whether conscien- 
tious objectors may be allowed to affirm when taking a 
Masonic obligation. To us, this is a trivial technicality. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 23 

In courts, witnesses are allowed to either swear or affirm 
at pleasure, but false testimony entails punishment for 
perjury in either case. 

Does not this parallel hold true in Masonry? 

Canada at Kingston receives friendly and fraternal 
attention. 

The thoughtful address of the Grand Master is worthy 
of close reading. He descants upon the present confused 
and feverish conditions of the whole world, but sums up with 
optimism. Under "Waste of Time," he adjures Masters to 
open lodge promptly, and avoid undue delays in other 
particulars. 

Masonry abhors a vacuum. 

We infer that he regards learning as endless, as is 
true of all study. 

He refused permission to the O.E-S. to meet in Masonic 
Temples but apparently has 'no great animosity against 
that Order. But there came to his notice a somewhat 
aggravated case of nit-wit men members bringing the 
O.E.S. into their lodge which evoked a warning. 

Which leads us to note that, from our observation, 
nearly all of the friction has been caused by thoughtless acts 
of the men members and not from the women. 

801 applications for relief were granted. Amount 
disbursed, $217,861. 

Nominations preceded the election. How does that 
strike you, Connecticut old hunkers? You who used to 
declare nominations "un-Masonic". 

Our old friend Col. Ponton, again submits the review. 

In over four pages, he amply covers Connecticut, with 
report and quotations. 

He is in favor of dual and plural membership. For 
ourself we find it almost impossible to do our full duty to 
the one lodge of which we are a member. 

This from Maine: — 

We note approval of a number of lodge amendments 
providing for opening lodge one hour earlier during period 
of (misnamed) Daylight Saving Time. But Maine sensibly 
adheres to Eastern Standard Time, as also does your 
erratic scribe. No trouble in making the little mathe- 
matical adjustment. 

Among the last words of Bro. Gallagher of Michigan 
these: — 

He notes: "I always enjoy Brother Kies". We recip- 
rocate, with compound interest. 

From North Carolina Review: — 

One Grand officer was installed by proxy. Could not 
be done in Connecticut.

The open sore of China is thus referred to under

The Grand Master reports constituting by proxy, a

refused to constitute this one, for some reason. 

Biographical sketches of Past Grand Masters prepared 
by Grand Secretary Buck form an interesting feature of the 
Proceedings.

The One Hundred and twenty-eighth Annual was held 
in Wilmington, 4th October, 1933. 

A record number of Past Grand Masters, twenty in all, 
were duly honoured. Only one other Jurisdiction welcomed 
such an array. 

Canada's Grand Representative did not attend. 
Distinguished visitors from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, 
New York, Maryland, Rhodelsland and District of Columbia 
were welcomed. 

The Grand Master said and quoted: — 
To our honoured guests from sister Jurisdictions, let 
me say that we highly appreciate your presence among us. 
Small in size and few in numbers as we are, nevertheless 
our Masonic welcome to you is just as warm and just as 
sincere as though we were many times as large. 

P.G.M's we welcome your continued advice and sup- 
port — and wise counsel. 

"And when at last, his gavel falls, 
This earthly lodge from labor calls, 
May Boas, pillar at the gate 
• Which angels tile, while Jachin waits, 
Unlose the bandage from their eyes 
And give them password to the skies. 
And in that Lodge, Celestial, Bright, 
May they behold the Perfect Light." 
My grandfather, the late John P. Allmond, who was 
Grand Master in 1873, had also been a member of the same 
lodge, and on that evening, with his one surviving son 
(my father) and six of his grandsons, filling the chairs of 
the lodge, we raised to the Sublime Degree of Master 
Mason, another. 

Under the capable and sympathetic direction of the

The growth of bequests to the Home has been a great 
aid in financing its activities. 

Digests on many subjects have been prepared and sent 
to Grand Lodge officials all over the country. 

In addition to these digests the Monthly Short Talk 
Bulletins have been prepared and sent to the lodges. 

A subject of concern to some of our sister Jurisdictions, 
which it might be timely to present for your consideration, 
is the steady growth of organizations which have Masonic 
affiliation as a requirement for admission. 

In most cases, these organizations are under no control 
by the Grand Lodge, and while most of them have high 
motives and purposes, and conduct themselves in a manner 
beyond reproach, there are others whose activities do not 
reflect credit upon the Masonic Fraternity. 

According to old custom and also to our ritual, the 
stone, when laid, should be the highest point in the struc- 
ture then in the course of erection. To lay the stone after 
that point has been passed interferes more or less with parts 
of the ceremonies. 

It is probable that within a short time the Eighteenth 
Amendment will be repealed. It is not my intention to go 
into the merits of this highly controversial question. I 
simply wish to fraternally admonish the brethren that our 
teachings of Prudence and Temperance have not, and never 
shall be repealed.

The Masonic Service Committee recommend the

Three Past Grand Masters were present. Delaware 
was represented by R.W. Bro. R. C. Blagrave. Dis- 
tinguished Guests from Michigan, Prince Edward Island

Bro. Herrington does not favor the reduction of fees 
and dues and says: "We should not become panic stricken 
because we have a few lean years, very lean they may be in 
most localities. But this is not our first experience of this 
kind. Our fathers did not despair when they were over- 
taken. 

The reports of the District Deputy Grand Masters

Distinguished visitors from Georgia, Louisiana and 
other concordant Bodies of Florida were introduced. Tele- 
grams were read from the Eastern Star. 

We make the following extracts from the Grand 
Master's able address: — 

It is well to quote the inducting paragraph of that in- 
stallation ceremony, that you may judge for yourselves 
whether I have used that power in keeping with your ideals 
of Grand Mastership: — 

The very consciousness of the possession of a great 
power will ever make a generous mind cautious and gentle 
in its exercise. To rule has been the lot of many, and 
requires neither strength of intellect or soundness of judg- 
ment; to rule WELL has been the fortune of but few, 
and may well be the object of an honorable ambition. It 
is not by the strong arm or the iron will that obedience 
and order, the chief requisites »of good government, are 
secured, but by holding the key to the hearts of men. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 27 

The weaker of our brethren need kindness, encourage- 
ment and personal contact to stiffen that backbone called 
self reliance. 

I believe that Masonry will come through cleaner and 
healthier, as if purged by fire. 

These individuals who have been incapable of absorbing, 
or who have not attempted to absorb, the principles of 
Masonry have become dross, to be skimmed off and con- 
sidered as waste. 

This report was adopted, but the continued depression, 
together with bank failures in many communities, in com- 
bination with an optimistic state of mind, peculiarly char- 
acteristic of the Florida resident, that conditions would 
soon change for the better, caused Grand Lodge to be most 
generous in granting further time on delinquencies. 

He speaks highly of the Masonic Home and the relief 
work. 

Real estate held by Grand Lodge does not receive an 
optimistic report but one sale was made. 

A touching remembrance of P.G.M. Massey thus 
concludes : — 

Above reproach, and, to his brethren as an exemplar 
of Masonic tenets, I would that I could place on his 
monument this epitaph: "He was my friend". 

Of the title Emeritus as applied to a retiring office 1 " 
he says : — 

Webster defines "emeritus" thus: — "One who has been 
honorably discharged from public service", but in this 
Grand Jurisdiction for that class of membership we have 
added the additional qualification "with bodily infirmities 
or misfortune". It is the classification "misfortune" that 
is misleading many lodges. It was never intended that 
lodges should apply this qualification to the young healthy, 
or middle aged healthy, man who temporarily has met with 
misfortune, but to that older brother with a lifetime of 
service who has become indigent and who has no possible 
hope of recovery from his unfortunate condition. 

They exercise a strict discipline in Florida as the 
following shows: — 

It became necessary to censure a particular lodge in 
this Grand Jurisdiction for petitioning (as officers and 
members of this particular lodge) a Federal Judge to ex- 
tend leniency to one whom he had sentenced for a violation 
of the 18th Amendment. 

Under Clubs we read: — 

A selective membership based not necessarily on lodge 
activity or ability, is most dangerous. 

It might happen that it would develop into more of a 
social than a working organization. 



28 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

The laying of Cornerstones is an official privilege of the 
Craft. We take this from one account: — 

Being unable to be present at the cornerstone laying 
of the new Government Building in Miami on May 14th, 
1932, I directed Bro. Sydow to act. 

One was declined. 

I fixed it up by giving releases personally in writing. 
The Stone Mason's Union furnished their men to handle 
the stone; and in order to comply with their rules they 
made me a member of the Union, so I could legitimately 
and correctly (I hope) spread the cement, and work in 
the same crew with the Union men." 

This, I submit is Union tyranny. Why lay the stone? 

Masonry feels that it is beneath its dignity to ente r 
into any matter controversial, whether it be religious, civi c 
or political, and the happenings in connection with the 
corner-stone laying of the Government Building in Miami 
would indicate the possibilities. 

Five Charters were surrendered. 

He wrote several letters to the Craft. 

This from his recommendations : — 

No man grows strong except by exercising his body. 
No brain grows strong except by study. No fraternal or- 
ganization grows strong except by practicing its principles. 

He made some interesting decisions. We select the 
following : — 

Having been a resident of our jurisdiction for 25 years 
this Japanese has previously been rejected in Delray Lodge, 
but is again petitioning. Verbal objection is being made on 
the grounds that the Craft would not be benefitted by his 
admission, that the Asiatic races are not socially equal to 
the Anglo-Saxon, and that a Japanese cannot adapt himself 
to the standpoint of American mode of living nor the 
principles of our Fraternity. 

Answer: — There is nothing in our Regulations in refer- 
ence to racial or citizenship qualifications and it would be 
perfectly proper to receive a petition from a Japanese. I 
do not feel that it would be proper for me, as Grand Mas- 
ter, to express an opinion on their social qualifications, or 
an opinion as to whether any race might conform to 
American standards of business or morals, and I would not 
presume to question the rights or opinion of any brother 
on any restrictions which he might conscientiously feel. 

Masons exclusively of the white race and their suc- 
cessors in office. 

Answer: — While it is true that our charter does so read* 
I would not presume to tell an individual or a lodge who is 
or who is not white, ethnologists differing as to race classi- 
fications and how such classifications should be made. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 29 

Further, I would myself exercise the privilege in my own 
particular lodge of being the judge when such a question 
was presented, allowing to a brother who might differ with 
me, the same conscientious right of difference. 

The intent in all Masonic trials is that fraternal 
justice may be accomplished without quibble or techni- 
calities, and the Regulations governing trials cover all 
possibilities in protecting the lodges and the defendant 
brother. 

There is but one interpretation, which is that it covers 
all elective officers. There might be instances where the 
greatest good could be accomplished were electioneering 
permitted, but the experience of years with the Craft at 
large has proven that this method as outlined by our law 
works for the greatest good, and there can be no exception. 

Masonry has made of its symbols and its names some- 
thing almost sacred, and I feel that it is out of place to use 
them for a purpose whose main object is notoriety. Its 
strength has come from the unobtrusive manner in which 
it conducts itself before the public and when it seeks the 
limelight it loses its strength. Individuals have gone too 
far in parading their Masonic connections, attempting to 
commercialize or secure preferment of some kind by the 
generous display of our Masonic emblems, and I feel that 
it is out of place for a lodge to do that same thing. 

Entertainment in the lodge room under the manage- 
ment of the Eastern Star, after approval by Ashlar lodge, 
to which no admission is to be charged but a silver offering 
requested? 

Answer: — I disapprove. 

;The charity box should be placed on the Altar and no 
contributions should be received other than for lodge 
purposes. 

Here is a home touch : — 

May I be permitted to present a petition for affiliation 
to a lodge in this Grand Jurisdiction, accompanied by a 
dimit from Union Lodge of Strict Observance, Detroit, 
while still holding membership in Bay of Quinte Lodge, 
of Toronto, Canada? 

Answer: — I cannot grant the request. There is no 
question as to the regularity of this dimit, as it rests upon 
a dimit from your mother Lodge, University No. 496, 
Toronto, which was accepted by Harmonia Lodge No. 138, 
West Palm Beach, followed by a dimit at a later date from 
Harmonia Lodge No. 139, which was accepted by Union 
Lodge of Strict Observance, and it would appear that a 
regular dimit could be placed with any lodge in this Grand 
Jurisdiction, but regulations and Grand Lodge action on 
decisions of Grand Masters in reference to dual and plural 
membership indicate that this section of our Constitution 
must be construed as being a dimit of allegiance as well. 



30 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

It is not proper for a particular lodge to sponsor any 
movement or organization over which the Grand Lodge of 
Florida through its Constitution and Regulations does not 
have absolute control. 

He answered no less than 51 questions on the Juris- 
prudence of Masonry and his replies were all conservative. 
A bit of wisdom from one of his letters: — 
It is human nature for individuals not to pay any 
obligation until forced to, and as individuals are responsible 
for the government of lodges, it would appear that some 
lodges are forgetting the fraternal obligation and waiting, 
as individuals would wait, for pressure on the collection of 
something that should be voluntary. 

Lodges are forgetting how unfair they are. 
An introspective questionnaire is suggested : — 
He should ask of himself a few pertinent questions: — 
Will I have the time to devote to the proper adminis- 
tration of its affairs? 

Am I broad enough to forget my personal feelings in 
this administration? 

A revised burial service was approved. This has been 
done in serveal Jurisdictions. 

This summing up of a memorial is striking: — - 

Tn Bro. York were combined the force and love, the 
gentle qualities and manly virtues necessary to translate 
idealistic dreams into definite realities. 

Ely P. Hubbell having been called to his Father, 
receives a wonderful tribute, as he deserved. The Round 
Table will miss him : — 

His audience never saw him at work. Brother Hubbell, 
as Chairman of Foreign Correspondence, each year pains- 
takingly reviewed voluminous printed proceedings of Ma- 
sons, throughout the world. From these he selected for us 
illuminating excerpts from speeches, edicts, rulings and 
Masonic interpretations around the globe. 

The face of a lone lighthouse keeper may never be seen 
by those whom he serves, but the fascinating assurance of 
his unfailing, patient efforts are theirs. So it was with Bro. 
Hubbell. Many of us could not single him out on the 
floor of the Grand Lodge, for he was modest and retiring; 
fewer still have heard him speak. 

B. W. Helvenston was elected Grand Master. 

Action on plural membership was deferred. 

The Foreign Correspondence Committee suggests stand- 
ards for recognition, which have now been adopted in nearly 
all Grand Jurisdictions. 

George W. Clendenan represents Florida. 

Membership 24,215. Net loss 3,307.

Quarterly Communication 1st March, 1933, at Kings- 
way Hall. 

His Excellency Hore-Ruthven was welcomed. 

Brethren, you know that Brig. -Gen. Sir Alexander 
Hore-Ruthven is Governor and Grand Master of South 
Australia. And you may perhaps remember at this moment 
that he is a soldier who won the Victoria Cross, and that 
he is a sportsman who has ridden in the Grand National. 
Both as a man and a Mason, -he is welcome wherever 
Freemasons and Englishman are assembled. 

The Book of Constitutions is to be revised. 

An Indian appeal was heard and dismissed, the Grand 
Registrar saying: — 

I have told you the facts of the case as fairly as I can. 
It seems to me that there are clearly no merits in the appeal, 
and no technical difficulties in the way, and I move, 
accordingly. 

Thirteen warrants were issued for new lodges. 

1,687 members were present. 

A full report of Finance Committee and audited state- 
ment of accounts was presented. Figures even in pounds 
Sterling stagger one and illustrate the marvelous bene- 
volence of the little Mother Isle. 

The Annual Grand Festival was held at Central Hall, 
Westminster, 26th April, 1933, the Grand Director of 
Ceremonies proclaimed the Duke of Connaught, Grand 
Master. 

Greetings were sent on his birthday. 

Arthur Oliver Villiers, Baron Ampthill was proclaimed 
Pro Grand Master. 

The Deputy Grand Master, Lord Cornwallis said : — 

Along with that growth, inspired by your example the 
Craft has filled an ever increasing position in the social life 
and structure of society, its influence has been more widely 
felt, its ideals raised, and its ceremonies more perfectly 
rendered. 

As the senior Brother here present, I beg, with all the 
loyalty and sincerity at our command, to offer you on be- 
half of all present, and of every brother on the register of 
the Grand Lodge of England, our warmest gratitude for 
your services to the Craft, and our heartfelt congratulations 



32 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

that the Great Architect of the Universe has spared you to 
fill the high office for this long span. 

The Pro Grand Master thus admonished Grand Officers 
and Grand Stewards, after which the brethren assembled 
in the Connaught Rooms. 

2,067 members were present: — 

Before we close this Grand Lodge, I should like to say 
one or two words to the Grand Officers and Grand Stewards. 
You, brethren, will have unusual duties to perform when it 
comes to our great week of festival for the Dedication. 
You are set up in a great Association in a position of 
responsibility and honour. What light that throws on the 
duties that devolve on you not only in the lodge but 
wherever you are and whatever you are doing. Whatever 
you are saying, whatever you are thinking, be careful to let 
no word escape your lips that might ever make anyone 
outside of Masonry suppose that you think lightly of the 
honour that has been conferred on you, or that you attach 
no importance to the responsibility you have undertaken. 
It sounds somewhat conventional to say that whatever is 
praiseworthy you should imitate, but think how it can be 
applied in the Craft. Everyone of us can learn a great deal 
from humble brethren on whom no rank or recognition or 

honour has been bestowed And it is not merely in 

the lodge room or at the festive board that that example 
is to be set. It is to be set wherever you are, whatever 
you are doing, and particularly whatever you are saying. 
(Applause). 

Quarterly Communication 7th June, 1933. Many Hall 
Stone Lodge Medals were presented in connection with the 
Masonic Peace Memorial. 

At each Communication the Board had the melancholy 
duty to report the death of many distinguished brethren,

Craft. 

A gold medal will be presented for Masonic Research. 

One member was expelled on a Motion by the Grand

Distinguished names of those highest in the Council of 
the Empire were present. 

Our Jurisdiction was represented by W. S. Harrington 
Grand Master, and John A. Rowland, Past Grand Master. 

Few addresses were given but among them M.W. Bro. 
Herrington's speech before the great audience, as represent- 
ing the whole of Canada, was in every way worthy. We 
reproduce it: — 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

M.W. Grand Master and Brethren, we, the representa- 
tives of the several Grand Lodges in the Dominion of 
Canada, have crossed the sea to present to the Brethren of 
the Grand Lodge of England the greetings and good wishes 
of 200,000 loyal Canadians. When we are ever in doubt 
in our country of the course to pursue in almost any sphere 
of activity, we ask what would be done in like circum- 
stances in the Motherland. This inclination to follow the 
lead set in the Motherland is manifest especially in all mat- 
ters relating to Freemasonry, for we, and all other Grand 
Lodges of the world, recognize that this is the Mother 
Grand Lodge of the world. And it is of special significance 
to Canadians, for when we arrive here, we find that the 
supreme ruler of the Craft is Your Royal Highness, who, 
during the all too few years of your sojourn in our country 
as the representative of His Majesty, won a warm place 
in the hearts and the affections of all Canadians (Applause). 
We have come, we have seen — only in part it is true, as our 
programme reveals that there is much more yet to be seen 
— but we have not conquered in any respect. On the 
other hand we have been vanquished and overwhelmed by 
the kindness and the brotherly spirit of our English breth- 
re. The first lesson we will take home with us is that on 
the other side of the Atlantic, hospitality is yet in its in- 
fancy. I believe this is the most representative Masonic 
gathering the world has ever witnessed, and we may here 
present an object lesson of which the nations of the world 
might well take notice. We have gathered from the 
four quartres of the globe, representing different races, 
speaking different languages. Yet we meet as brethren, 
and address each other as Brothers. There is no sealed 
contract or bond of union to unite us together, apart from 
the common desire to elevate the moral standard and im- 
prove the well-being of the citizens of our respective 
countries. It has been a great pleasure to us to meet the 
representatives here of the other Jurisdictions, and especially 
of our brethren from across the line, from the United 
States. Canada is frequently referred to as the interpreter 
between Great Britain and that great Republic. We are 
somewhat proud of that title, and think we have done some- 
thing to justify its application to us. We further believe 
that Freemasonry has played no unimportant part in main- 
taining peace between our two countries for the last 120 
years. There are no battleships on our Great Lakes; 
there are no fortifications on our borders; there is not a 
single policeman guarding the frontier; but there are scores 
of Masonic Lodges on either side, and it is a matter of 
daily occurrence that visits are exchanged between those 
lodges, and the goodwill established by those exchanges of 
visits is far-reaching and spreading in an ever-widening 
circle. 



34 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

We desire to congratulate the Grand Lodge of England 
upon the completion of the magnificent Temple. It is of 
great personal interest to us that it stands as a memorial 
to all our Brethren who fell in the Great War. It serves 
a further purpose in that it facilitates the propagation of 
those Masonic principles for which those brethren made the 
great sacrifice. That it may long remain so is the earnest 
wish and prayer of all Canadian Brethren. (Applause). 

6,299 members were present. 

A special meeting was held for the dedication of the 
Masonic Peace Memorial, 19th July, 1933, the Grand Mas- 
ter on the Throne, with all the Royal Princes occupying 
their stations, Prince George is Senior Grand Warden. 
The opening hymn was sung: — 
"Hail Eternal, by whose aid 
All created things were made, 
Heaven and earth Thy vast design, 
Hear us, Architect Divine. 
"May our work, begun in Thee, 
Ever blest with order be; 
And may we when labours cease 
Part in harmony and Peace. 
"By Thy glorious Majesty, 
By the trust we place in Thee, 
By the badge and mystic sign, 
Hear us, Architect Divine. 
So mote it be. 
The Grand Chaplain, the Rt. Rev. Bishop of Guildford, 
D.D., delivered the oration: — 

The occasion itself is very great; great also is this 
wonderful Assembly representing Freemasonry as it has 
probably never been represented before. I have two sources 
from which to draw confidence: first, that I was ordered to 
speak by the authority which we all obey: and secondly 
that what I say, or fail to say, is of minor importance, 
because what we are doing to-day delivers its own oration 
in a manner and with a clearness which none of us will ever 
forget. We could not, even if we desired to, forget yes- 
terday: and to-day will be not less memorable. 

Today the great historic facts which bring us here and 
inspire our Memorial are speaking with that eloquence 
which needs no words. So too are all the glorious deeds of 
the "qui procul hinc ante diem periit, sed miles, sed pro 
patria." And so also those events in which the Hand of 
The Most High can be most clearly seen: they too speak 
clearly and their message is the most precious part of the 
tradition which we desire to hand on. 

Most of us to-day are British patriots, loyal to the 
core; loyal to the King, our constitution and our freedom. 
But we have heard an ever greater call which inspires us 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 35 

for the brotherhood of man of which our Brotherhood as 
Masons is a pledge, a foretaste, the advanced guard. That 
is our real work: the aim to keep before us. It is in pro- 
portion to the sincerity of our conviction that this our goal, 
the mark of our high calling, that we can say "the Lord 
of Hosts is with us." 

The Grand Master gave the invocation: — 

Yet, have respect unto our prayer and supplication, 
and hearken unto our cry. May Thine eyes be turned 
towards this house, by night as well as by day; and when 
Thy servants shall pray to Thee from this house, hearken 
unto their supplications: hear them in heaven, Thy dwelling 
place, and when Thou hearest, forgive. 

The choir sang the anthem : — 

I have surely built Thee an house to dwell in, a settled 
place for Thee to abide in for ever. 

The Grand Master visited all the lodgerooms in the 
great Temple, to which the ceremony had been relayed. 
He added to the enjoyment and realization of the brethren 
by his gracious and personal presence. 

5,353 assembled in Grand Lodge. 

Quarterly Communication 6th September, 1933. 

Major William Denton of Liverpool, was elected Grand 
Treasurer. A new member took the place on the Board of 
General Purposes of Lt. Col. Hamilton-Wedderburn. 

The Grand Lodge Library and Museum have been 
reopened. 

The President of the Board of General Purposes thus 
spoke : — 

We Freemasons of all people should be eager to pay 
tribute to architects and builders. To-day we do so once 
more, first and foremost to W. Bro. H. V. Ashley and W. 
Bro. Winton Newman who by their inspired skill and im- 
mense labours have created this great structure. As the 
Grand Master said when the plans were presented to him 
at the Dedication , on that day we placed a crown on their 
labours. The most elaborate arrangements were worked 
out very largely by our Assistant Grand Secretary, Bro. 
Sydney White. 

Finally, I wish to express our special thanks to the 
Pro Grand Master. During that week, Lord Ampthill, 
by his speeches and still more by personal contact, gave the 
very greatest pleasure to our guests, and did everything 
possible to make them feel welcome and at home. 

A deputation sent to represent the Grand Lodge of 
England at Massachusetts composed of General Francis 
Davies and General E. C. Walthall reported: — 

In the afternoon we attended a Masonic Service at the 
Old North Church, Christ Church, Salem Street, a relic of 



36 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the Colonial days. The Book of Common Prayer was used, 
and listening to Cranmer's prayers being read, one realized 
to the full the common origin of the two nations. 

We were very much impressed by the charitable 
activities of the Brethren in Massachusetts. In addition to 
the Masonic Home at Charlton, whih was originally an 
hotel much added to and enlarged, and the Hospital at 
Shrewsbury, better described as a Home of Rest for Chronic 
and Incurable cases, a very great deal is done in outside 
relief and the care and education of orphans. 1,100 dollars 
per day is spent in charity and the whole thing is very 
well organized and managed. 

At a Special Communication of Grand Lodge all the 
visiting Brethren were present, including representatives 
of every American Jurisdiction. General Sir Francis 
Davies was presented with the Henry Price Medal, a rare 
distinction, and Brigadier-General Walthall with the Joseph 
Warren Medal. 

2,446 members were present in London. 

Quarterly Commuunication 6th December, 1933. 

A Consultative Council was reported as having been 
formed to advise regarding Masonic affairs in China, the 
Grand Lodge of the Philippines refusing to co-operate 
continues to warrant Lodges there. It was alleged that 
this was with the avowed intention of forming a sovereign 
Grand Lodge of China. The opinions of other Grand Juris- 
dictions with regard to this action vary. 

A presentation to the Pro Grand Master Lord Ampthill 
was thus expressed : — 

I ask leave to interpose at this stage. Age has some 
advantages even in these days, for it can look back on 
certain notably happy occasions. To me none could be 
more delightful than to have the privilege of offering to 
you in the name of the brethren of the Grand Lodge of 
England a memento — a fitting memento, we hope — of your 
long and honourable tenure of the responsible office of 
Pro Grand Master (Applause). If that stood alone it 
would suffice. Freemasonry has been to you, I believe, 
a relaxation rather than a toil in life, a life devoted whole- 
heartedly to the public service, and, when your picture 
hangs in that long gallery of distinguished members of your 
illustrious family, it will commemorate not only the esteem 
and affection of your brother Masons, but the record of a 
career in many fields and waters. But please, M.W. Pro 
Grand Master, do not think that we consider your innings, 
finished. (Applause) You have just played yourself in 
and can no score with greater freedom. (Laughter). 

We rejoice with you that Lady Ampthill has been 
pleased to allow Grand Lodge to associate her name with 
this happy occasion, and to accept a souvenir of her gracious 
services to the Craft. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 37 

During that period approximately two thousand one 
hundred lodges have been consecrated. These gratifying 
results have been in no small measure due to your inspiring 
example and unselfish zeal in promoting the principles and 
tenets of the Craft. 

To this the Pro Grand Master feelingly and graciously 
replied : — 

I do not know which is the harder to bear, unmerited 
praise or undeserved blame. Unmerited praise causes 
shame and confusion; undeserved blame causes anger and 
resentment. Now anger and resentment are easy to express, 
and to do so affords some relief to pent-up emotion, but 
undeserved praise causes shame and confusion which can 
only be endured in modest silence. 

The wonderful tolerance and generosity of the Craft. 
Freemasons never turn out any old servants, and they are 
marvellously charitable and generous in their judgment on 
those who have served them in any way. 

So far as I am aware there has not yet been any such 
watchword or slogan as "A.M.G." which being interpreted 
in popular parlance would mean "Ampthill Must Go." 

I now feel happy in the hope that I shall hand that on 
to my children, that one of them at any rate will be proud 
and happy to possess it. Because I do want them to know 
and, if God so pleases, their children, if they have any, to 
know in the future, that Freemasons thought well of me. 

1,937 brethren were present. 



GEORGIA, 1932 

Joe A. Moore, Grand Master. 

Frank F. Baker, Grand Secretary. 

The Proceedings are year by year printed by the boys 
and girls of the Masonic Home and do them credit. 

The One hundred and forty -sixth Annual was held in 
Macon, October 25, 1932. The brethren joined in singing 
"How Firm a Foundation, Ye Saints of the Lord", and 
throughout music was interspersed. 

The following tribute was paid to Past Grand Master 
Napier: — 

I rise to announce with profound sorrow that in the 
month of May of this year that George M. Napier an- 
swered the last summons and has gone to his reward. 

He was a man of tremendous force for good, not only 
in the circles of Masonry but also in the civic life of his 
state. 

He was endowed by nature and education with a mag- 
netic personality, a commanding presence, a well trained 



S8 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

mind and unusual powers of logic and expression, and had 
a keen understanding of all the motives which underlie 
human conduct. 

"Praise for the noble dead is an inspiration for the 
noble living". 

Nine Past Grand Masters were present. 

Canada was represented by C. Percy Taylor. 

The address of the Grand Master is courageous under 
difficulties. We quote: — 

A great loss in numerical strength had been suffered 
and it was realized that we could not hope to hold our 
own this year. 

Conditions today demonstrate the futility of hoping 
that humanity's problems can be permanently solved in a 
spirit of bitterness, hatred or greed, and we are now turning 
to the only solution that has ever existed. 

In carrying out this effort much more than fifty 
thousand miles were traveled and more than two hundred 
talks made at strictly Masonic gatherings. 

Expense came from funds provided out of our resources 
made possible through a willing sacrifice on the part of one 
designating herself as the Grand Lodge Widow. Acknowl- 
edgement is made for what I consider a larger oppor- 
tunity for service. 

That these great blessings, so abundantly given by a 
loving and considerate God, might be distributed to hu- 
manity in its need, the fraternal spirit of brotherly love 
must assert itself in human relationships. It is a glorious 
opportunity. 

We are doing pioneer work and have received the 
commendation it merits from the State Department of 
Welfare. 

Many Bills looking towards economy were rejected by 
Grand Lodge. 

Membership 51,813. 

Articles were prepared for educational purposes. 

A motion not to pay the per diem allowance did not 
carry. 

The Foreign Correspondence Committee recommended 
the recognition of Chile, Ecuador, Panama and Guatemala. 

The Grand Master is directed to countersign all 
cheques. 

The Report of Firley Baum, Grand Correspondent, is 
brief but to the point: — ■ 

In scanning the Reviews of 1932 I was deeply interested 
in the great amount of charity that was being given bv the 
brethren: to our Orphan Homes, Homes for aged men and 
women and Hospitals. Thirty Grand Jurisdictions report 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 39 

over 10,000 beneficiaries in our Institutions and ten of these 
(all that give financial report on this question) report 
expenditures of $2,656,837. 

A great brotherhood — one that touches all men, every- 
where. It knows no sect or creed — nor is it limited by 
clime or race or geographical boundaries. 

A visit to the Grand Lodge Nationale of Egypt, 
where his official reception was the same as generally 
practised. 

Short addresses of welcome to Past Grand Master 
Cowles were made in the Arabic, Turkish, French, Greek, 
English and Italian languages, then the Grand Master 
stated that he had sent notices of the meeting only the day 
before. 

This was a fine exemplification of universality. 

Stood W.M. Moses Seixas, the Jew, in the presence and 
majesty of his Christian Brother, George Washington, in 
1790, and presented to him the felicitations and welcome of 
his co-religionists, opening with these words: 

"Permit me of the stock of Abraham to approach you 
with the most cordial affection and esteem for your person 
and merits, and to join with your fellow-citizens in wel- 
coming you to Newport. 

"May the Father of all Mercies scatter light and not 
darkness in our paths, and make us all, in our several 
vocations, useful here, and in his own one time and way 
everlastingly happy." 

Congratulations to the Grand Lodge of British Col- 
umbia for conferring the rank and title of Past Grand 
Master upon Bro. De Wolf-Smith, Grand Secretary for so 
many years. This Grand Lodge honors itself in thus 
honoring Brother Smith. 

Masonry stands for something in the affairs of mankind. 
It stands for high character, for human liberty in the 
finest sense of that term, for law, for order, for peace, for 
common honesty and for the right of all things. 



GEORGIA, 1933 

William B. Clarke, Grand Master. 

Frank F. Baker, Grand Secretary. 

The One hundred and forty-seventh Annual was held 
in Macon, October 31, 1933. Ten Past Grand Masters 
present. 

C. Percy Taylor represented Canada. 

The address of the Grand Master is a classic, showing 
noble courage and frank outspokenness. We wish we could 



40 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

reproduce it all. The following must suffice to show this 
manly man sent by Providence to help redeem Georgia 
from its troubles: — 

There was not the slightest indication that your Grand 
Master would assume office in the darkest period of the 
history of Masonry in Georgia. Yet, such a time has come 
and the leadership of the Craft has fallen upon the shoulders 
of one of the youngest men ever to occupy the chair of the 
Grand Master. The responsibilities of that office have 
demanded supreme courage, unfailing faith, an enlightened 
mind, a clear vision, unswerving service and absolute 
impartiality. 

Columbus came to find gold and not to find God. 

Ponce de Leon and De Soto came from Spain under the 
same banner of love of God and love of man. They came 
and pillaged. . . They too, came to find gold and not to 
find God. They did not stay. 

To the shores of South America came Riccardo Cortez. 
He placed the banner of the Prince of Peace upon the 
shores of Mexico, and then proceeded to dye the soil of that 
country red with the blood of murdered Aztecs. Robbery 
and pillage were his methods. Gold was his prize. Human 
life had no value in his eyes and, since that day, there has 
been revolution and death in South America. No stable 
government has ever existed. 

About three hundred years ago, there came to these 
shores the Huguenots of France; the Roman Catholics of 
Europe; the Jews of Portugal; the Lutherans of Austria; 
the Stuarts, the Puritans and the Quakers of England. 
Each came to express in freedom that faith in God which 
was denied him in the country from which he came. On 
the shores of North America, they found that God whom 
they sought, and they worshipped Him in peace and accord- 
ing to the faiths of their fathers. 

With the vast progress of the nation in the years 
succeeding the World War, wealth, goods, prosperity and 
carelessness came in also. The numerous candidates meant 
riches to the lodges. Funds were accumulated. Lodges 
entertained. They became lax in the conduct of their 
business. Money came easily, it was spent freely. Lodges 
carried many members upon their rolls who were in arrears 
for dues and paid the taxes of the Grand Lodge upon them 
out of their excess funds. 

The signing of vouchers had another purpose. This 
purpose was to familiarize the Grand Master, in detail with 
all of the financial transactions of the Grand Lodge and 
thus give him an opportunity to co-ordinate the work of 
the various agencies of the Grand Lodge. This has been 
done. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 41 

Masonry teaches honesty. The Grand Master would be 
a poor specimen of a leader of the greatest Order in the 
world, if he did not practice honesty in its policies. He 
made a complete and honest statement to the bank of the 
financial condition of the Grand Lodge and a definite and 
concise statement of his determination and of his policies. 
Let it be sufficient to say that all necessary credit was 
extended on the basis of the policies outlined. 

The Grand Master requested that the Association 
authorize the preparation of a MANUAL FOR SECRE- 
TARIES. 

Correspondence with Most Worshipful Brother Johnson 
definitely established the rank of the Grand Lodge of 
Georgia on the basis of historical facts and, when your 
Grand Master arrived in Boston and joined in the cele- 
bration of the 200th anniversary of the birth of con- 
stituted Freemasonry in America, his efforts were rewarded 
by Massachusetts when that Grand Jurisdiction, for the 
first time in history, accorded to Georgia the coveted 
position of second oldest Grand Lodge in America and 
fourth oldest in the world. 

The ritual is but the flesh and bone of Masonry. 
Symbolism contains Masonry's soul. The Masonic army in 
Georgia today is being defeated, not through lack of leader- 
ship, not because of lack of lovalty of the members but, 
because of the failure to obtain SPIRITUAL FOOD. 
Georgia does not spend one cent out of the thousands of 
dollars received to furnish light to the candidates who seek 
it or to enlighten the members who come time after time 
to the lodges to get it. 

Have our Masters been taught that they are the Master 
teachers of their lodges? Do they realize that, sitting in the 
East, the place of Wisdom, they are supposed to impart 
Masonic wisdom to those whom they lead? They have not. 
No wonder that our members frequently state that they do 
not go to lodge meetings because they get nothing but the 
same old thing over again. We are the products of a 
machine age and the time has come to stop placing all of 
the emphasis in Masonry on the mechanics of the Degrees. 

The Grand Master refused to permit one hundred and 
eleven lodges to destroy the efficient work of four hundred 
and fifty which had performed their duty. The one hun- 
dred and eleven delinquent lodges were suspended. 

May the verdict of yourselves and of time be based 
upon a realization of faithfulness and may you say of him 
that "He tried to fight a good fight; he tried to keep the 
faith." 

Guests from Tennessee, South Carolina and Louisiana 
were welcomed. 

The Committee on the Grand Master's address recog- 
nized its many .merits saying: — 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Our pen can add no lustre to the glory of the record 
which is his, neither can it predict the heights possible for 
him to attain in his future personal and Masonic career. 

Devotion and Service is our Grand Master's text. 
May we not in the rank and file adopt the same text and 
make it the slogan of Georgia Masonry. 

Membership 46,444. 

Guy G. Lunsford was elected Grand Master. 

Georgia is behind the times with regard to Grand 
Representatives, crediting the late W. R. White, deceased 
for several years, as its Representative here. W. J. Thomp- 
son should be substituted. 

Raymund Daniel has resumed his post as Grand 
Correspondent. All that he says is eloquent: — 

Many changes have come in the affairs of our country 
We have passed through a maelstrom of perplexities, probl- 
lems and dangers. 

Even now, although we can catch the vision of a newer 
light, the departing darkness still lays its shadows along 
the path. 

Still harassed by the difficult problems which the 
severest economic depression of modern times has brought, 
still under the stress and anxieties that attend our analysis 
of conditions, all thinking Craftsmen are still unshaken 
in their faith in God, Country and Freemasonry. 

Our Fraternity — as an organization, has been run 
through the melting pot of refinement. 

Freemasonry has been purged until only the hyssop 
has remained. Only those continue who can fight under 
the flag of God and Gideon. 

Masonic leaders are pointing to the fact that, with the 
elimination of the ritualistic material of the gold-rush days 
of floods and flocks of candidates — and the departure of 
ceremonial ring-masters, the faithful followers of the Craft- 
hood have had the opportunity to inaugurate and carry 
out programs that will reveal the real plans and principles. 

As we look to the future, there dawns, without blare of 
trumpet or acclaim from housetops, the knowledge that 
there is only one Master, and He is Jehovah; there is only 
one lodge and that is the World; that there is only one 
Brotherhood and that is Humanity.

IDAHO 

William F. Smith, Grand Master. 
S. Irven Roberson, Acting Grand Master. 
Curtis F. Pike, Grand Secretary. 

The Sixty-seventh Annual was held at k Moscow, Sep- 
tember 12, 1933, in the Elks Temple. 

The Proceedings are directed to be read in the lodges 
and the lodge secretary must report the fact officially* to 
the Grand Secretary. 

From the invocation these thoughts: — 

Enrich our hearts with Thine own love, light and good- 
ness that the Grand Lodge may at this and at all times 
reflect that order, beauty and unity which reign forever 
before Thy throne. 

Let Thy protection be over all the members of the 
mystic family, whithersoever dispersed, and bless their 
lawful labors. 

Greetings were received from Nevada and Oklahoma 
and distinguished visitors from Montana and Washington. 
Washington sends frequent visitors and Idaho feels com- 
plimented that they like them well enough to come again. 

Seventeen Past Grand Masters, an array typical of the 
West, greeted the brethren. 

Canada's Grand Representative did not respond. 

The recorded lamented death of Grand Master Smith 
was feelingly referred to. 

Certificates of proficiency are issued through the 
D.D.G.M's. 

Charges signed by nine Past Grand Masters were 
filed against a brother. This is a new procedure. 

The Committee report on Education: — 

In higher altitudes, any educational activities there 
must be carried on in the lodge itself without much help 
from the outside. 

We have encouraged the purchase of library books and 
the reading of Masonic journals. Wherever we have gone 
we have encouraged Masonic studies. We have given in- 
struction on all occasions on the simple matters of ritualistic 
perfection. 

M.W. Bro. Percy Jones, Chairman of Foreign Cor- 
respondence, reports: — 

Masonry begins and ends in the perfect performance of 
the Ritual. * I say to you Masters that you can do your 
lodges no finer service than by making them reading lodges, 
Masonically-intelligent lodges. Let a lodge be made up of 
men who know what Masonry is about, where it came from 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

and where it is going, who see in Masonry not just another 
club but an abode of brotherly love and human sympathies 
— show me such a lodge and I will show you a lodge in 
which the Worshipful Master's time is not taken up with 
adjusting personal differences among the brethren, but who 
has time to carry on the legitimate enterprises of his station. 

Only two Masonic Grand Lodges in the United States 
show net gains in membership, namely Arizona, 42, and 
Nevada, 33. Net loss in membership in all states, including 
the Philippine Islands and Porto Rico, 113,880. 

The famous silver traveling trowel which was sent out 
from Justice Lodge No. 7.53, New York, twenty-eight years 
ago, to journey among the brethren throughout the length 
and breadth of the land, has fulfilled its mission of spread- 
ing among the lodges and brethren of the L'nited States 
the spirit of brotherly love and affection, and has arrived 
at New York again. This traveling trowel sprang from the 
thought of Brother C. Fred Crosby of Justice Lodge, who 
at that time had been a Mason only a little more than 
one year. 

It is better to have one good working lodge than two 
weak, struggling ones. 

S. Irven Roberson was elected Grand Master. 

Grand Orator Harold made an impressive oration on 
Masonry and the Crisis of To-day. We cite the following 
passages : 

The records of our ancient craft are not to be found in 
the archives of stone or iron, nor upon the tablets of ma- 
terial formulated by the hands of men, but rather upon the 
parchments of human character, and within the sacred 
shrines of human history. 

We have learned as one of our foremost writers says 
that "Masonry has become a fraternity teaching spiritual 
faith by allegory, and moral science by symbols." 

With what significance we accept its emblems, we are 
certain of two things. 

The antiquity of our Order is no criterion for its per- 
petuity. 

The achievements of the past can of themselves afford 
no guarantee of an effective survival for tomorrow. 

Today is our day, and tomorrow will tell in altogether 
legible handwriting and clarity of tone just that which we 
have been doing today. 

Maybe the time has come for Masonry to restate, and 
relive something of its objective, and purpose of its exist- 
ence. In my mind, it needs a revival. 

Faith has been and is, the one commodity which has 
been all too limited in its output. Faith is society's in- 
cessant demand. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 45 

You who read the Saturday Evening Post may possibly 
recall an article in 1932, issue entitled, "The Bone Empire," 
in which Mr. Taylor states that Chinatown in San Fran- 
cisco, Detroit, Chicago, and New York knows little or 
nothing of hunger or unemployment, because "says he" 
these sons of Confucius have adopted their great ancestors' 
code of morals in all earnestness, and every Chinaman in 
this country knows that the venerable elders who gather 
around the black table in the Six Companies Palaces can 
pull strings that almost as by magic guarantee him work, 
food, shelter, and protection against the undertainties of 
life and even hereafter." Surely Freemasonry, with its 
avowed brotherhood can show no less a spirit of brother- 
hood. Let me remind you of a master teacher who advised 
"if one say he loves his brother, and seeing his brother in 
need shutteth up his bowels of compassion, how dwelleth 
the love of God in him?" 

Broken family life and promiscuous domestic relations 
are not apt to solidify the thought and faith of any people. 

The Grand Lodge of England was organized in 1717 
and a stream of influence came from that worthy body. 
"The men of that Assembly stand out as prophets of liberty 
of faith, and righteousness of life." 

The public school situation is a grave one. Its enemies 
are ever active to grasp every opportunity to discredit 
America's educational system. Recent instances — wide- 
spread — have clearly shown that there is a concerted move- 
ment to weaken the public school and thus strengthen its 
rivals. 

I close by reminding you of Bernard Shaw's drama 
entitled "Joan of Arc". In scene three Joan and her army 
are encamped. 

Fear of the English hold them back, but Joan has no 
such fear because she feels that she is ordained to drive the 
English out of France. Joan is talking with Dunois, the 
French commander. She is trying to hearten him for the 
attack: 

Joan — Our men will take them. I will lead them. 

Dunois — Not a man will follow you. 

Joan — I will not look back to see whether anyone is 
following me. I am not a daredevil. I am a servant of 
God. My sword is sacred; I found it behind the altar in 
the Church of St. Catherine, where God hid it for me; and 
I may not strike a blow with it. My heart is full of cour- 
age, not anger. I will lead, your men will follow; that is 
all I can do. But I must do it; you shall not stop. Gentle- 
men, this day is our day. 

The Jurisprudence Committee report: — 

In regard to putting an O. E. S. emblem on their new 
Masonic temple. Answer — While there is no written law 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

against putting an O. E. S. emblem on a Masonic temple, 
it is my belief that we should keep our Masonic temples 
free from any entanglements with any other organizations. 

The address of Grand Orator Harold was thus referred 
to: — 

Ernest F. Harold will agree there was nothing per- 
functory about it. Nothing but the zeal of sincere earnest- 
ness could have so impressed the listeners and so riveted 
their attention as was done on this occasion while listening 
to that masterful address. 

One memoriam verse: — 

"One by one we miss the voices, 
That we loved so well to hear, 
One by one their kindly faces, 
In the darkness disappear. 
"Then all that now seems mysterious, 
Will be plain and clear as the day, 
And the toils of the road will seem nothing, 
When we get to the end of the way" 
R. F. Richardson of Strathroy, is the Grand Repre- 
sentative of Idaho, and Marion W. Kelley, represents 
Canada.

Percy Jones presents brief but comprehensive Reviews 
of sister Jurisdictions. 

A familiar verse from British Columbia. 
"We 'adn't much regalia 
Our Lodge was old and bare 
But we knew the ancient land-marks 
And we kept them to a hair." 
This from California: — 

Religion, if it means anything, means everything. 
It is not an accident, or an incident, or an expedient. 

Canada at Windsor is well reviewed. We quote: — 
The Grand Master in his spelndid address urged the 

Brethren to be of good cheer: The clouds may hang heavily 

on our horizon. 

The Grand Master also visited the Grand Lodges of 
Massachusetts, Connecticut and the Sesqui-centennial of 
New York. In 1928 it was suggested that steps should be 
taken to create a better understanding. 

He had been called to approve the by-laws of some 
lodges that desired to reduce the initiation fees: "Masonry 
is a luxury, and we must discourage any propaganda which 
attempt to make it too attractive." Lodges should main- 
tain a balanced budget. 

The Foreign Correspondence is amply reviewed but 
Idaho is missing.

The Ninety-fourth Annual at Chicago, October 10, 
1933. 

The Orphans' Home Band gave a delightful concert and 
organ recital. 

At the opening of Grand Lodge, Grand Chaplain Honn 
gave this inspiring invocation :—=- 

O Thou Eternal Grand Master and Lord of us all, 
draw divinely near to us as we present our humble petitions 
in these our morning devotions. 

We have passed swiftly from the mountain tops of joy 
into the very depths of the valleys and shadows of sorrow. 
The Grim Reaper has struck blow by blow. 

We beseech Thee, especially, O God, for the benedic- 
tion of Thy grace to rest upon these dear children to whose 
music we have been listening. Coming to us in beautifully 
blended harmonies, their renditions have charmed our very 
souls, taking us back again to those childhood days when 
our lives were one sweet symphony of innocence, and 
causing us to see reflected therein some of the hideous 
ugliness that selfishness has wrought in our grownup lives. 
O, cause these melodies to echo and reverberate throughout 
our natures until we shall know anew the guileless simplicity 
and soulful purity of Thy little ones. 

Grant that our Fraternity may be mantled anew with 
Christian fellowship, and raise ever higher and higher its 
standard. 

That blessed cement which holds, with the strong grip, 
even in death itself. 

Ten Past Grand Masters were present. 

The Grand Master in his address says and quoted: — 

Opportunity for service, thoughtful actions on the part 

of the entire membership, unselfish demonstrations of the 

love of one for another, could not help but bring happiness 

and contentment. 

"There is a spirit whose name is Death, 

And with his sickle keen, 
-He reaps the bearded grain at a breath 

And the Flowers that grow between." 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Masonry has come through weathering the storm, 
proving strong and unbreakable. 

Masonry has kept an even keel. 

Masonry is a happy thought and does not contain a 
dreary suggestion. It cultivates a smile. 

Our weakness today is in the fact that we do not know 
our brethren and as a result cannot know how we can 
serve. 

The practical application of Freemasonry is found in 
the maintenance of the Children's Home. There each day 
of the year we find Masonry taken from its idealistic state 
and made a vital living force for the bringing of sunshine 
and contentment to over five hundred human souls. 

The Homes are the outstanding visible monuments of 
Masonry which send their spires to the heavens and stand 
unchallenged before the world. 

"Gone is the Builder's temple, 

Crumbled into the dust; 

Low lies each stately pillar, 

Food for consuming rust. 

But the temple the teacher builded 

Will last while the ages roll, 
For that beautiful unseen temple 
Was a child's immortal soul." 
One hundred forty-one thousand questionnaires were 
sent out to the membership and lodge committees. Hun- 
dreds of unfortunate members were found employment. 
Deplorable conditions were discovered. 

"For there's lots of joy in living, if you live your life 
aright. 
Lots of sunshine and of roses, keep your eyes turned 

to the light; 
Look behind the clouds of trouble; there's a silver 

lining there, 
And you're always sure to find it, if you're living 
on the square." 
The seal of Grand Lodge has inscribed on the omnip- 
rasent eye "Faith, Hope and Charity". 

Visiting Grand Masters from Michigan and Montana 
were welcomed. 

Only one case came before the Committee on Appeals 
and Grievances. 

Grover C. Niemeyer was elected Grand Master. 

The Committee could not recommend the recognition 
of the Grand Orient of Greece. 

Grand Orator Ewart delivered the oration on "The 
Spiritual Challenge of Masonry" saying in the course of his 
remarks:— 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 49 

The Spirit of the Eighteenth Century spoke: ("Tell 
thy tale, brother. Give us word of the human kind we 
(eft to thee." 

"I am the Spirit of the Wonderful Century. I gave 
man the mastery." 

"I freed the thoughts of men. They face the facts and 
know." 

"I broke the chains of bigotry and despotism. I made 
men free and equal. Every man feels the worth of his 
manhood. 

"I have touched the summit of history." 
"You have made men rich. Tell us, is none in pain 
with hunger today and none in fear of hunger for to- 
morrow? Do all children grow up fair." 

"You have made men wise. Are they wise or cunning?" 
"My millions live from hand to mouth. Those who 
toil longest have least". 

"I believe the Holy Spirit 

Fills this earth from shore to shore; 
'Round, about, above, beneath us, 

Bearing witness evermore. 
Where the Holy Ghost abideth, 

Though He tarry but a night, 
Even sordid eyes behold Him 

In His wondrous love and light — 
In the Paraclete of Promise, 
I believe." 
R.W. Bro. William Tinsley reported on his visit to the 
Grand Lodge of England at the Peace Memorial, appreci- 
ative of the hospitality shown him and of the dignity of the 
Proceedings. The following is of special interest to us: — 

Mrs. Tinsley and myself made the return trip across the 
Atlantic on the S.S. Duchess of Richmond, where we were 
again exceedingly well taken care of. On the journey the 
customary informal meeting of members of the Masonic 
fraternity among the passengers was held, presided over 
by W. S. Herrington, Grand Master of Canada in Ontario, 
as chairman. Thirty-two jurisdictions were represented. 
Sylvester O. Spring represented Canada. 
The Chairman of the Committee on the Grand Master's 
Report hails from Belleville, 111. 

Membership 264,151, a tragic and startling loss for the 
year is 15,102. 

George S. Henry, Prime Minister of Ontario, represents 
Illinois. 

The Masonic Correspondence is in the capable and 
experienced hands of Delmar D. Darrah, P.G.M., who in- 
fuses his own personality into the Reviews. We quote from 
his Preview: — 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

While the work is always laborious even to the state of 
monotony at times, yet there are bright spots which make 
refreshing oases in the desert of extremely dry matter. Of 
course every reviewer is constantly hunting for that one 
thing of outstanding value which is out of the general trend 
of Masonic endeavor. 

Rosters of lodges printed in proceedings constitute a 
wanton waste of time and money. 

There has been a marked disposition in all jurisdic- 
tions not to bring forth matters that would upset the present 
routine. Grand masters have been content to go along the 
line of least resistance, and avoid as far as possible creating 
undue excitement. 

The Masonic fraternity has in it an element of stability 
which will enable it to stand. 

The fraternity will come back into its own. 

Canada at Kingston receives these friendly touches — 
which we appreciate: — 

Walter S. Herrington, Grand Master of the Grand 
Lodge of Canada, addresses his Grand Lodge upon a num- 
ber of pertinent subjects. Like all Grand Masters, he has 
considerable to say about the general condition of our 
times and the prospects of ultimate recovery. His con- 
clusions are: Heroic effort is going to be required to right 
things, and people must eliminate their luxuries and ex- 
travagances, and commence to live sanely and wisely. 

Brother Herrington speaks about a subject that this 
writer has harped upon many times, and that is the waste 
of time that the average lodge indulges in. He talks about 
brethren loitering in the ante-room and spending their time 
in the card and pool rooms. 

The Chain Letter has invaded Canada, and super- 
stitious brethren have helped to circulate it. Canada does 
not permit the Order of the Eastern Star to meet in Ma- 
sonic Temples. Notwithstanding the various pronounce- 
ments against the Eastern Star in the jurisdiction of Can- 
ada, there are still brethren who seek every opportunity to 
foist the female organization upon the ancient craft. 

His admirable and well written address closes with words 
of encouragement. 

The committee in charge of the Condition of Masonry 
make a very interesting report. 

One thing the committee said was: "Adversity is an 
acid test of character and stability." 

The correspondence report is written by William 
Ponton. His reviews are thorough and complete, giving an 
adequate idea of just what was accomplished by each Grand 
Lodge reviewed. He is very generous to Illinois, according 
pages of careful and discriminating review. Our session is 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 51 

thoroughly reviewed, with liberal extracts being taken from 
the outstanding reports, and there is much bright, sparkling 
comment concerning our transactions, which shows that 
Brother Ponton has a very thorough understanding of what 
constitutes genuine Freemasonry. 

IOWA 

Fred G. Hansen, Grand Master. 

Charles C. Hunt, Grand Secretary. 

The Proceedings open with a portrait and sketch of the 
Grand Master, from the latter of which, by Louis Block, 
we take the following characteristic extracts : — 

Since then he has been a faithful matriculant and tire- 
less student at the great "University of Hard Knocks," 
profiting well by the great lessons there learned. 

Yet with a soul ever eager for more light he won from 
the L T niversity above mentioned all of good there is in "a 
college education" without encumbering his mind with 
much of the silly superfluities which so many of us carried 
away from our alma maters, for as Colonel Ingersol long 
ago said, "A college is a place where pebbles are polished 
and diamonds are dimmed." 

We have been glad to follow the leadership of this 
man, for he has proved by his vision, his foresight, his 
never failing courage in the presence of desperate obstacles 
his sagacity, his powers of diplomacy, his love of his 
brethren, that he was one to be depended upon. 

The Ninetieth Communication was held at Cedar 
Rapids, June 13, 1933. No less than sixteen Past Grand 
Masters exemplifying fidelity to the Craft. 

From the Grand Master's address we take some appeal- 
ing extracts : — 

If ever the lessons inculcated in that Great Book, the 
rule and guide to our faith, were needed, if ever the actions 
of mankind needed to be squared by the Square of Virtue, 
it has been in the year now drawing to a close. 

Supporting us has been more than tradition, more than 
mere idealism. We have builded on a foundation of proven 
solidity. 

The great crucible has freed us of the dross of self- 
interest, selfish striving for preferment, irrespective of merit, 
and has brought our Fraternity nearer to that state of 
perfection toward which the eyes of every Entered Appren- 
tice are turned when he first approaches the East. 

In that faith, we go forward. 

Held, that the Grand Master was without authority to 
remit Grand Lodge dues, that authority resting only with 
the Grand Lodge. 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Held that a trustee is not an officer of the lodge. 

Held, that a trustee of a building committee is not an 
officer of the lodge and therefore may be elected secretary. 

Let us all unite with skill, industry and zeal to effect a 
most notable rally of the Craft of this Grand Jurisdiction 
under the slogan of, "Every Iowa Mason in Lodge at the 
same Hour." Given under my hand and seal. 

Time, that familiar and yet mysterious something that 
we see not and neither do we hear, has brought me to this 
day all too soon. 

The Grand Lodge Bulletin of Iowa is a feature of the 
active work of the Craft and a worthy exponent of Masonry 
reflecting its spirit. 

The report of the wonderful Library does not neglect 
other Masonic Libraries and wishes them God speed to 
follow in their train. 

Lars A. Larson was elected Grand Master. 
The Committee on Masonic Service reported good work 
well done. 

On Grand Lodges the Committee said: — 
Recognition belongs to the technical side of Masonry, 
and that is a most important side; but after all there are 
other and equally important sides. 

On the Universality of Masonry, Co-operation is often 
possible where Recognition is impossible. 

The Report on the Fraternal Dead by Bro. Perkins is 
an outstanding effort, full of poetic gems: — 

"There is a mystic border land that lies, 
Just past the limits of this work day world; 
We know that just by reaching out our hand, 
In written words of love, or book, or flower, 
The waiting hand will clasp our own once more 
Across the silence in the same old way." 

"He liveth long who liveth well, 
All else is being flung away. 
He liveth longest who can tell 
Of true things truly done each day. 
Fill every hour with what will last 
Use well the moments as they go; 
The life above when this is past 
Is ripe fruit of life below." 
"Upon the field he tilled, the sower sleeps; 
Not his the shining sickle or the flail. 
But with the patriot dead of us he keeps 

The vigil, that we falter not or fail. 
So shall we at the dawn's first rising beams 

Go forth to bring the harvest of his dreams." 

All the members joined in the pledge of allegiance to 
the flag. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 53 

A special Committee on Controversies, whose name sug- 
gests their work, reported fully and submitted their judg- 
ment. 

Membership 79,353. Net loss 4,048. 

Too many. 

The familiar and friendly features of Louis Block, 
writer of the Fraternal Review, again greet us. His Fore- 
word is appealing and is entitled "A High Hill and a Low 
Dale". We reproduce as much as space will permit: — 

Where did our Ancient Brethren usually meet? 

On a high hill or in a low dale. 

If there is one thing that characterizes our Masonic 
institution it is the fact that every part and parcel of its 
ritual is packed with meaning. 

That meaning rarely lies upon the surface, but is more 
often buried deep within, thus making not only the neophyte 
but the student and scholar as well, dig and delve for it, if 
he would discover it, and derive from that discovery, the 
blessing it has never failed to bring. 

Beneath the shell to the kernel that lies concealed 
within. These must get at the meat in the cocoanut. 

For these, it is not enough to have "a rule and guide to 
our faith," but that faith must find fruition in action, must 
be forced to yield a harvest of good deeds done. 

The message of the celestial is of real worth only as it 
finds expression in the terrestrial. 

For many of us Masonry's contact with man is to be 
found through the avenue of charity. 

"The gift without the giver is bare!" 
that it is not enough to minister unto a mans' body, and 
that his soul may need service far more, and that "not 
alms but a friend" should be our watchword — that what we 
most need is: — 

"The touch of human hands — 
That is the boon we ask." 

A bereaved father reached out his hand to the motor- 
man saying, "Bill, I just wanted you to know that I do not 
blame you for the death of my boy!" 

That's what I mean by carrying the vision of the high 
hill down into the low dale. 

From the review of Alberta this paragraph: — 

We find him giving expression to Masonry's doctrine 
of the soul's immortality — a doctrine which, by the way, is 
finer and nobler in its conception than that entertained by 
many other organizations. 

Canada at Kingston receives favourable comment. 
We cite from our colleague's review: — 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

In his annual address Grand Master Herrington pays 
his compliments to the communists in no uncertain terms. 

Under the head of "Questionable Financing" we find 
Bro. Herrington severely condemning the processes of 
gambling by which so many lodges nowadays seem tempted 
to replenish their funds. 

Bro. Herrington speaks a strong word in behalf of 
ventilation of lodge rooms. 

Bro. Herrington stands coldly aloof to any bland- 
ishments on the part of the Eastern Star. 

There is something of the eternal in Masonry which 
stands its members in good stead in crises. 

Our good friend, Ponton, submits one of those fine 
Reports on Fraternal Correspondence that have served to 
make him so justly famous. 

Brother Ponton is graciously complimentary concerning 
the work of the writer. 

Our sympathy goes out to this good brother who 
labored in pain to produce results of such permanent value. 
He has the right to say with the author of our great 
Masonic Hymn: 

"Out of my stony griefs 
Bethel I'll raise." 

Bro. Block's Afterword is a gem, and the Review itself 
is well indexed. We close with the following from his 
anthology of prose and poetry. 

"Wist ye not, I must be about my 
Father's business?" 

"Have we not all one Father?" 

— The Great Light. 

If not aloud, then in the secret chambers of the heart 
we have chanted the Scotchman's prayer: — 
"God bless me and my wife, 
Our son John, and his wife, 
Us four and no more." 

Have you seen or read Maxwell Anderson's powerful 
play that has but now pulled down the Pulitzer Prize — 
called "Both Your Houses?". It tells the story of that 
cowardly crowd called Congress, scared to death with the 
fear of losing the votes of those of us who "look upon 
government as little more than a well-stuffed grab-bag into 
which we can push our grasping hands." 

That game of grab would be going on yet, were it not 
for the courage of a Mason who sits in the White House and 
has cowed them with the crack of his whip into serving 
the people. 

Even Masonry has come to measure success in the 
terms of the material. She points with pride to the towers 
and turrets of her mighty Temples, covered and canopied 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 55 

no longer by "the starry decked heavens" but by a mighty 
mortgage. 

Yes, "business" is all right, provided it is the right 
kind of business, provided it is what the Master called 
"my Father's business". 

"Business is Business," the Little Man said, 
A battle where 'everything goes,' 
Where the only gospel is 'get ahead', 

And never spare friends or foes. 
'Slay or be slain,' is the slogan cold, 

You must struggle and slash and tear, 
For Business is Business, a fight for gold, 
Where all that you do is fair!" 
"Business is Business", the Big Man said, 
A battle to make of earth 
A place to yield us more wine and bread 

More pleasure and joy and mirth; 
Business is Magic that toils for man 
Business is true Romance. 
"And those who make it a ruthless fight 
Have only themselves to blame 
If they feel no whit of the keen delight 

In playing the Bigger Game. 
The game that calls on the heart and head, 

Best of man's strength and nerve; 
Business is Business, the Big Man said, 
"And that Business is to serve!" 
William A. Westfall represents Canada. 



IRELAND, 1932 

The Earl of Donoughmore, Grand Master. 

Henry C. Shellard, Grand Secretary. 

The annual stated Communication was held on Saint 
John's Day, 1932, R.W. Bro. Raymond Brooke, D.G.M., 
presided in the absence of the Grand Master. 

A fine tribute was paid to the late Colonel Claude Cain 
of whom it is said : — 

He had made himself known and respected all over the 
world wherever we have lodges. 

Permission was given by the United Grand Lodge of 
England to constitute Leswarree Lodge with a Travelling 
Warrant in the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars. The 
consent is thus reported : — 

The Grand Master approached the authorities in 
London on the matter and not only did they at once give 
us permission to meet on English soil, but also came for- 
ward saying in the most brotherly way that if there was 



56 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

any help they could give us of any sort we had only to 
let them know. 

With regard to the depression this is said: — 

We have received reports from the Provincial Grand 
Lodges all over the world. I am glad to say that they are 
all in a fairly cheerful key. They do, one and all, refer to 
the bad times that everybody is going through, but at the 
same time they tell us of the way in which the brethren are 
helping one another. What these report bring home to us 
is that while perhaps we are feeling the draught here, we 
are not the only people between the door and the window, 
and it is some consolation to us to know that as long as 
we are able to help a brother in distress, there is still a 
silver lining to the cloud. 

Grand Lodge had met in Newry in October. 

The Reports of the various Provinces are given in full 
and encouragingly, and special notice is taken of the 
newest Provincial Grand Lodge in Natal. 

This again is emphasized in the constitution: — 

Pure Ancient Masonry consists of the following degrees 
and no others, viz.: — The Entered Apprentice, the Fellow 
Craft, the Master Mason and the Installed Master, but the 
degrees of Royal Arch and Mark Master Mason shall also 
be recognized so long as the Supreme Grand Royal Arch 
Chapter of Ireland shall work only those two degrees in 
the form in which they are worked at the passing of this 
law." 

Again with reference to the new military lodge we read : 

The Grand Lodge of Ireland was no stranger to travel. 

It was absolutely unique for one Grand Lodge to meet 
on the territory of another Grand Lodge with its consent. 

The lodge took its name from a battle at Leswarree, 
in India. The 8th Hussars was, he believed, the only 
Regiment that had the honour of inscribing this name upon 
their colours, and that was something that gave great pride 
to Irishmen. 

Irish Working was exemplified in Paris. 

The Reports include the Jurisdictions in South Africa> 
the Southern Cape, New Zealand, Rhodesia and Malta. 

Many donations to the Grand Library and Museum are 
recorded. To Canada it may be said "go thou and do 
likewise". 

The last number in the list of Irish Lodges is 1009. 

The Honourable Mr. Justice Fitzgibbon represents 
Canada, and Ireland is happily represented by M.W. Bro. 
E. T. Malone, K.C. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 57 



IRELAND, 1933 

The Earl of Donoughmore, K.P., Grand Master. 

Sir Robert Baird, Grand Treasurer. 

Henry C. Shellard, Grand Secretary. 

The Proceedings open with most impressive pictures of 
the Grand Lodgerooms, Freemasons' Hall, Dublin, showing 
the richness and symmetry of the adornments and archi- 
tecture. 

From the address of the Grand Master we make some 
illustrative extracts — the first ones being of a memorial and 
obituary nature: — 

Sir William Taylor was almost equally well known 
outside Dublin. He had also a world-wide reputation in his 
profession and the surgical world is poorer by his loss. 
He was keen, energetic, and always ready to sacrifice his 
busy time on our behalf, and we shall long remember him. 

They were splendidly entertained. There was an 
obligation, as it were, to look after them, on the part of 
Lord Galway, whom we can claim to have some connection 
with Ireland, from his name. We had a very remarkable 
gathering: one which drew Freemasons from all over the 
world. 

Brother Curtis Chipman, during the year, was ap- 
pointed our representative in Massachusetts. 

I am glad to know from the report that the Grand 
Lodge of Instruction goes on flourishing from strength to 
strength. 

They recognize its ancient foundation, and they 
recognize, above all, the splendid effect it has on the 
candidate, and that is the Supreme object of all Masonic 
working. 

Above all, our task of setting an example to the world 
at large, how a good man ought to behave. That work goes 
on well in spite of clouds on the horizon around us. There 
is no man in the world who is not a better man for being a 
good Mason. Freemasonry is a guiding star that Provid- 
ence has placed at our disposal, and for which we can all 
be most supremely grateful. 

The Grand Secretary made a most comprehensive 
Report, embracing the Communication of the Grand Lodge 
held in Coik, at which Mr. Justice Fitzgibbon, Canada's 
Grand Representative, acted as Senior Giand Warden. 

They attended the dedication of the Masonic Peace 
Memorial in London, the Earl of Donoughmore saying in 
his address there : — 

But if you were inspired by love, you were also in- 
spired by faith. Faith that the work done that afternoon 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

would raise up a super-structure honourable to the builders. 
Faith in the ideals of the whole Craft. 

Freemasonry is not merely a historic exhibit gloating 
in its records and satisfied with itself as it is. It is a 
living force of brethren anxious to help. 

We have to build up in our hearts for the world 
around us a symbolic building, a home for all that is just 
and right, radiating good-fellowship throughout the world. 

The Grand Lodge of Ireland conferred Honorary 
Membership on Curtis Chipman of Massachusetts. 

With regard to Jewels this ruling: — 

The Board ordered that this Regulation must be 
strictly adhered to, and that in future all Past Masters' 
Jewels of Subordinate Lodges must be in Silver. 

All the District Deputies, including South Africa and 
New Zealand, reported faithfully. 

The Masonic Orphan Boys' School is one of the jewels 
of Grand Lodge. In addition there is an Annuity Fund. 

Many donations to the Grand Lodge Library are 
recorded. 

Elias Talbot Malone, K.C., honoured Past Grand 
Master, is the Grand Representative of Ireland. 

In the returns from the Lodges, No. 1009 is the last 
number on record. 



KANSAS 

John M. Kinkel, Grand Master. 
Elmer F. Strain, Grand Secretary. 

The Seventy-seventh Communication convened in 
Wichita, 15th February, 1933. 

John W. Neilson, General Grand High Priest, and the 
Grand Master of New Hampshire were welcomed. 

Sixteen Past Grand Masters strengthened the Grand 
East. 

George O. Foster represented Canada. 

From the Grand Master's address the following fine 
passages : — 

All of our Masonic brethren are human, all possessed 
of the same general foibles and idiosyncrasies found to exist 
in the average of human nature, save and except as the 
same may be modified by the personal appropriation of and 
the putting into their actual living experiences, the prin- 
ciples and tenets of the Craft. 

Therein lies at once the heart of the practical question: 
Of what benefit is Masonry to the individual devotee 
thereof? And naturally, the answer to this question is 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 59 

controlled entirely by the interest in and loyalty and sense 
of appreciation of the one assuming Masonic obligations. 

Within the confines of the lodge room, Masonry is 
supreme. 

There its law controls. 

This sort of quiet, potent influence is a most valuable 
asset and should be husbanded and protected by every 
member and guarded with a jealous care. 
"There are three lessons I would write, 
Three words, as with a burning pen, 
In tracings of eternal light, 
Upon the hearts of men. 
"Have Hope. Though clouds environ round, 
And gladness hides her face in scorn, 
Put off the shadow from thy brow; 
No night but hath its morn. 
"Have Faith. Where'er thy bark is driven — 
The calm's disport, the tempest's mirth — 
Know this: God rules the hosts of heaven, 
The inhabitants of earth. 
"Have Love. Not love alone for one, 
But man, as man, thy brother call; 
And scatter, like a circling sun, 
Thy charities on all." 
It is my conviction, predicated upon a number of years 
of experience and observation, that the violation of any of 
our Ancient Customs and Landmarks carries with it its own 
sure penalty, the same as does the violation of any physical, 
moral, civil or spiritual law. 

"Emergency Council of Fraternal Organizations in the 
U.S.A." Several reasons given for the organization of such a 
council are alleged to be:- 

"It will give the great body of members of these 
organizations a voice in favor of or opposition to any move- 
ment that they might agree is desirable or undesirable. 
Furthermore, it will provide a stimulating agency that can 
place fraternalism at the head of any movement it wishes 
to inaugurate, whether that movemet be of national, state 
or community importance." 

It probably is unnecessary for me to say that my reply 
advised that, under the provisions of our law, it would be 
impossible for us to join the proposed organization as a 
Grand Lodge. 

The first opportunity to make a good Mason is in his 
careful consideration of his application for the degrees. 

Our lodges generally do and they should make every 
reasonable effort to elect qualified officers, such brethren as 
have sufficient appreciation of their obligations to give a 
full measure of self-sacrificing and devoted service. 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Timothy C. Wardley was appointed Grand Representa- 
tive of Kansas. 

As to delinquent membership Grand Secretary says: — 

It seems desirable also that all lodges should, where the 
facts justify, make a reasonable compromise settlement of 
the amount delinquent for all brethren who care for restor- 
ation. 

Membership 74,151. Net loss 4,697. 

Bishop Mead delivered an eloquent oration from which 
we quote: — 

There existed in Asia Minor, at the time of the building 
of Solomon's Temple, a society of Dionysian artificers, who 
were extensively engaged in operative masonry. 

All of the artificers of the East were members of this 
society and among them, it is traditionally reported, were 
the workmen sent by Hiram of Tyre to Jerusalem. 

They erected temples and cathedrals and religious 
buildings under the name of "Traveling Free Masons". 

Honorary members soon gained a dominant influence* 
and Masonic lodges in time ceased to be operative and 
became purely symbolic. 

The Line reminds one of sincerity and moral rectitude 

The Trowel is emblematic of unity in the building of 
character. 

The Chisel is representative of education; the Level, 
of equality; the Hammer, of discipline. 

The Lambskin, or White Apron, reminds one that the 
lamb has been considered in all ages as representing in- 
nocence. Among the Greeks, it was accepted as sacred; 
its color pure white, was considered most acceptable to the 
gods. 

If it be true as a great and distinguished educator 
has recently said, "the first task of modern education is 
to recover faith in God", then Masonry has a great func- 
tion to fulfill in the world of to-day. 

From the Committee on Necrology: — 

"We think that God is surely proud of those who bear 
A sorrow bravely; proud, indeed, of them 
Who walk straight through the dark to find Him there 
And kneel in faith to touch His garment's hem. 
And with a look, a touch on hand or head, 
Each finds his hurt heart strangely comforted. 

A special report on Correspondence says: — 

As the Grand Lodge of Argentina is not sovereign and 
independent your committee is obliged to recommend that 
their request be denied. 

They deny the request of the two Grand Lodges of 
Czecho- Slovakia in Prague to be recognized but do com-

mend Lessing Ringen Grand Lodge. Many other applica- 
tions are to receive additional investigation. 

George O. Foster, Canada's Grand Representative, was 
elected Grand Master. 

Albert K. Wilson, the veteran Chairman of Corres" 
pondence, calls attention to the total net loss in member- 
Ship as much larger than last year. 

He emphasizes what Alberta says with regard to 
"Questionable Publicity". 

From the California Review the following: — 

Referring to the subject of "Masonic Keys", all of 
which to the notion of the writer are more or less a viola- 
tion of our sworn obligations. 

Canada at Kingston is well reviewed in friendly fashion 
We quote: — 

The Grand Master delivered an extremely interesting 
and instructive address and we only regret that we are not 
able, under existing circumstances, to quote more liberally 
from the various subjects. 

As the saying goes, a case of "more truth than fiction" 
is certainly good advice to lodges where they do not open 
the lodge at the time provided in their by-laws:. 

The attitude of this Grand Lodge toward the Eastern 
Star, as a matter of information was approved by the 
proper committee. 

The Board on Condition of Masonry submitted a very 
interesting report. 

Bro. Ponton again prepared the Fraternal Correspondence 
and Review, in which he includes a splendid report. 

This from the Review of Iowa: — 

"For it's always good spending weather 

When the cohorts of Congress get together!" 

Some ways we are like the Grand Monarch who said, 
"After me the deluge", only we do not even want to get 
our feet wet. 

He pays his respects to the lottery of the Shrine under 
Wyoming. 



LOUISIANA 

John C. Ayers, Grand Master. 

L. E. Thomas, Grand Secretary. 

The One Hundred and twenty -second Annual was held 
in New Orleans, 6th February, 1933. 

Grand Chaplain Foster gave the invocation, from which 
we take the following : — 

May we not only be able to pass an examination 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

showing proficiency in our work before Thee, but to pass 
before Thee in our character and daily living. 

Oh, Thou, Supreme Grand Master of the Universe, 
teach us in our Craft and in its tenets that we may be 
transformed, that we may not be minor ashlars, but that 
we may be perfect ashlars to be builded. 

Fourteen Past Grand Masters buttressed the Grand 
East. 

The Grand Master after welcoming distinguished guests 
from Arkansas and from Kansas, in his address said: — 

Grand Lodge should be as lenient with the constituent 
lodges as the constituent lodges are lenient with these un- 
fortunate brethren. 

Your courage in the face of many difficulties has been 
an inspiration. 

You are here assembled to promote the best interests 
and the welfare of Louisiana Masonry. You are responsible 
for the success of our lodges and yours is the voice that 
will proclaim the ideals of the Masonic Fraternity. 

They abide with us, not because of contemporaneous 
birth, but by virtue of the ideals they have personified. 
We do not seek to fashion our lives in some new and 
strange effect, lest we find ourselves adrift in uncharted 
seas. 

A Masonic lodge cannot sponsor any outside organiza- 
tion. 

Bro. Burns, W.M., asked me to render an opinion on 
the following: "In a Lodge of Sorrow would it be permis- 
sible to use the "Ode To a Skull" followed by "How 
striking this emblem of Mortality once animated like our- 
selves, now behold it has ceased to act, etc." ending with 
Bryants last verse "May we so live that when our summons 
comes, etc." 

I can see no objection to the use of any poem of 
merit appropriate to any Masonic ceremony. 

Regarding trial of Bro. Salles in Chapter 174, O.E.S. 

The present charge against Bro. Salles is not as District 
Deputy Grand Master, but as to his action in reporting 
certain matters to the Grand Master while District Deputy 
Grand Master. In other words, the words "District Deputy 
Grand Master" are merely added gratuitously. They 
could have preferred the charges against him for making a 
report to the Grand Master being a member of this Chap- 
ter. 

What have we to do with Chapter O. E. S.? 

Bro. Wamsley, Secretary, Silent Brotherhood Lodge. 
I have your letter regarding Joint Meeting of the members 
of your lodge and the Order of Eastern Star for the purpose 
of celebrating the Bicentennial of the Birth of George 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 63 

Washington. In as much as this is an open meeting to ba 
held in the Court room of the New Court House Building, 
a dispensation will not be necessary. 

The Grand Lodge of Louisiana does not recognize the 
Grand Orient of Greece, therefore, a member of that or- 
ganization is a profane in this Jurisdiction and is not 
entitled to Fraternal intercourse with us. 

He made in all seventy-six decisions, a judicial record. 

Canada's Grand Representative, Prentiss B. Carter 
was present. H. C. Tugwell of Toronto, represents Louis- 
iana. 

In connection with the Washington celebration, greetings 
were received from the Grand Orient of France, thus 
recorded : — 

"Of the United States of America and to the American 
Nation on the Occasion of the Second Centennary of the 
Birth of George Washington. 

"The Grand Orient de France, faithful to the lofty 
ideal of Universal Free Masonry, intends to celebrate those 
among the eminent Free Masons who, through their great 
dignity, their unselfishness, the services rendered to man- 
kind, have made their names an ornament to our Order. 

With regard to the Grand Masters' Conference this is 
quoted : — 

A great teacher once said: 

"The tragedy of the human race is not that man is 
poor. 
We all know something of poverty. 
Not that men are wicked. 
Who can claim to be good? 
Not that men are ignorant. 
Who can say he is wise? 
But that, men are strangers." 

Four Cornerstones were laid. 

A clandestine Lodge was incorporated but A.F. and 
A.M. were struck out of the title. 

From the monthly circular issued by the Grand Master 
we take the following : — 

Also the Grand Master through this office issued over 
8,000 letters to be sent to members, who were about to be 
suspended, in order to arouse in them some appreciation of 
our Fraternity and, as far as possible to assist the lodges 
in their arduous undertaking. We hope some good has 
resulted therefrom. 

Membership 8,228. Net loss 551. 

The Grand Secretary in his report, which is more than 
statistical, quoted: — 



Hi GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

"Dont hunt for trouble, but look for success! 
You'll find what you look for — don't look for distress! 
If you see but your shadow, remember, I pray, 
That the sun is still shining, but you're in the way! 
Don't grumble, don't bluster, don't dream and don't 

shirk, 
Don't think of your worries, but think of your work, 
The worries will vanish, the will be done — 
No man sees his shadow who faces the sun!" 

De Molay received much attention : — 

On order that the representatives to Grand Lodge 
might have an opportunity to witness the presentation of 
one of the most dramatic scenes of human history and at 
the same time to see what a wonderful opportunity the 
Order of DeMolay offers to reach and influence, by its 
beautiful work and teachings, the young American man- 
hood between the ages of sixteen and twenty-one; the 
fundamental precepts of the Order being: "Love of Parents, 
Reverence, Patriotism, Cleanliness, Courtesy, Fidelity and 
Comradeship." 

Many pictures of the Home, of the children and of the 
surroundings illustrate the Proceedings. 

The Committee on Foreign Correspondence reported : — 

Navojas, Sonora is entitled to recognition and, there- 
fore, recommend that the same be recognized and repre- 
sentatives exchanged. 

We recommend that recognition be withdrawn from and 
fraternal relations be severed with! the Grand Orient of 
Brazil and that recognition be extended to the Grand 
Lodges of "Rio de Janeiro," "Parahyba," "Bahia," and 
"Sao Paulo" and representatives interchanged. 

The situation in Uruguay is somewhat similar to that 
in Brazil. In the case of Uruguay, however, the divorcing 
of Symbolic Masonry from Scottish Rite was effected by 
amicable treaty. 

Until recently, all the degrees of Masonry in Argentina 
were, as in Brazil, and Uruguay, under the control of the 
Supreme Council. 

That recognition be extended to the "Gran Logia 
Masoneria Argentina. 

Action be deferred on the National Grand Lodge of 
Egypt for further investigation. 

Action be deferred on the request of the Grand Lodge 
of Liberia. 

W. D. Haas, Jr., was elected Grand Master. 

Edwin F. Gayle, P.G.M., presents his fifth Review 
and does it well. We quote from his Introduction: — 

The central thought, the dominating idea, that has 
influenced all Masonic proceedings during the year, has 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 65 

been that of George Washington, the man, the Mason, the 
soldier, the statesman, the patriot, the hero, the personifi- 
cation of Masonic ideals. 

Memorial to Washington! Heed the mandate of the 
Masons of America! — Point ever to the sky to direct faith 
heavenward, hope to that place prepared for our immortal 
home. By thy symmetry and beauty, bid men to fashion 
their character. 

Masons everywhere are meeting the situation like men, 
struggling, fighting, battling, yet helping, aiding, assisting, 
serving, sacrificing. 

Besides this, the proceedings reflect the trend toward 
dual or plural membership, a closer relationship and a 
better understanding among the sister, jurisdictions. 

Masonic Education is receiving attention. A growing 
realization that philosophy and philanthropy are above 
dogma and ritualism. 

Canada at Kingston is honoured in friendly fashion. 
We quote from his Review: — 

The Grand Master deplores the depression and ad- 
monishes the brethren to bend every effort to tide over the 
situation. He gives some timely advice and suggestions 
with regard to lodge finance and calls attention to the 
necessity of ventilation. He criticizes the practice of some 
members who loiter in the recreation rooms and play 
bridge or billiards while the lodge is in session. We learn 
also that our Canadian brethren are not exempt from the 
chain letter imbecile. 

The Grand Master leaves us in no doubt as to his 
attitude toward the Order of the Eastern Star. To a 
request for permission to meet in a Masonic Lodge room, 
he answered emphatically "no". 

Bro. Ponton, presents the report on Fraternal Cor- 
respondence and Review in a masterly manner. 

We find his reviews a mine of information and spark- 
ling with gems of philosophy and literary expression. He 
makes liberal quotation from our proceedings as well as 
from our Correspondence Report. 

This from his Manitoba Review: — 
"Not in the time of pleasure 
Hope doth set her bow; 
But in the sky of sorrow, 
Over the vale of woe. " 

In the Review of Victoria we read this comment: — 

The Order of the Eastern Star means no more to us 
than a sewing circle, literary club, or a social service club 
that might happen to be composed exclusively of Masons' 
wives, sisters, mothers, and daughters. Our attitude to- 
ward the Order of DeMolay and the Rainbow Girls is 



66 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

pretty much the same and is not very different from that 
which some of your Australian Grand Lodges entertain 
toward the Boy Scouts, when you foster or give entertain- 
ments, except perchance, the relationship of father to son 
or daughter) may quicken the interest somewhat.

Hotel, Winnipeg, on June 14th, 1933. 

Canada was duly represented by M.W. Bro. J. C.

Several Past Grand Masters, headed by my old friend 
Andrew B. Baird, were present for duty and honour. 

Distinguished visitors from British Columbia and 
Canada (in Ontario) were present. M.W. Bro. Dargavel 
received a special welcome and addressed Grand Lodge to 
their great satisfaction. 

The Grand Master begins his very striking and scholarly 
address in these words : — 

The golden thread of Masonic philosophy, drawn from 
out a far off past, would have dimmed and the glory of its 
achievements faded had it not persistently sought to help 
mankind interpret the will of the Great Architect of the 
Universe. 

"It is the land that freemen till, 

That sober suited Freedom chose, 
The land where girt with friends or foes. 
A man may speak the thing he will." 

We have been taught that social institutions, free to 
evolve according to man's wisdom under Divine guidance, 
are the surest guarantee to light, liberty and the happiness 
of future generations. 

The year has witnessed the establishment of the Peace 
Garden, situate in part within this Grand jurisdiction, and 
marking a century of peace between Canada and the 
United States. 

Two Past Grand Masters were called by death. 

The Grand Master said well and practically: — • 

A Freemason accepts nothing in this world as perfec- 
tion. The goal is never reached. Progress is eternal. 

Periods of adversity are but high light
